Notes about this historic site

1 9 Celtic coins were discovered while metal detecting on land near Bedworth (SP 37 87). A further coin & a coin fragment were found a few days later. The find was reported to the Warwickshire Museum. The 10 coins & 1 fragmentary coin are all gold ‘staters’ issued by the Corieltauvi tribe, who lived in what is now Lincolnshire & Leicestershire. The coins were struck during the period 50 BC – AD 20. Scientific analysis of similar coins indicates that approximately half the metal content is of gold or silver & the other half copper.
