Place Services commissioned for rare Iron Age finds

15 Jan 2019

Historic England has commissioned Place Services to co-ordinate the specialists' reports on a find of late Iron Age coin-moulds, pottery and animal bone that was discovered eroding into the River Rib at Braughing, Hertfordshire.

Braughing was one of the main tribal centres in England during the Late Iron Age, and the coin-moulds represent the earliest evidence for the use of coinage in Britain. Led by Senior Historic Environment Consultant Maria Medlycott, the project will ensure that this important group of artefacts is recorded and preserved for posterity, as well as contributing to a better understanding of the role of coinage in Late Iron Age society, and monetary usage in Britain.
