The hoard consists of 840 gold coins dating from between 20 BC-AD 20. The hoard is rare for the time period and unique for this type of discovery as it contains only gold coinage. It is tangible evidence of the long history of the peoples of the British Isles and offers a direct connection to the Iceni tribe which remains strongly linked to the story of Boudica, one of Britains most famous folk heroines.
Discovered by a metal detector user in March 2008 and subsequent SCCAS excavations near Wickham Market, Suffolk. Originally called the Dalignhoo Hoard and declared Treasure in 2008.
