I'm just noting this hoard of coins discovered near Hayle that date from 253AD to 274AD.

That's a lot of coins a very long way West.  I wonder what they were doing there.  Seems very Cornish that they were in a tin, not in a ceramic pot.  We don't historically do a lot with ceramics down here.

What a fascinating hoard! And so tightly dated around the end of the Gallic Empire. As you say, you have to wonder at the story behind the hoard...
