The new hoard is likely to be a previously undiscovered part of that original hoard. The Whaddon Chase hoard (and consequently, the Little Horwood hoard) is particularly important, numismatically, because even 150 years after the original discovery, it is still the main source of Whaddon Chase type coins (named after the original find). These were probably minted to pay the tribute demanded by Julius Caesar following his second invasion of Britain in 54 BC.
Found by metal detectorists at Little Horwood in Buckinghamshire and declared Treasure in 2007.
