Did you know: Metalwork

  • April 13, 2017

Despite the lack of settlement evidence, Stonea Camp has produced metalwork in the form of Bronze Brooches, & gold and silver coins.

These date almost exclusively to the last period of occupation at Stonea around the 1st century AD (AD 43-60) i.e. the conquest period. At least 3 coin hoards have been found by metal detectorists.

Interestingly coins from all three of the main Celtic Tribes (Gold Cunobelin staters, Iceni silver coins and gold Corieltauvi coins) have been found at Stonea, which is almost unheard of and if true may represent one of the most significant discoveries about the site and its purpose.
