Finstock Local History Society: The Watlington Hoard: King Alfred's coins and Viking treasures, by Dr John Naylor


The Watlington hoard was recently acquired by the Ashmolean Museum for £1.35M. This talk will explore the story of the hoard, the coins and objects it contains and why it is such an important find for understanding late 9th-century Oxfordshire. John is the Portable Antiquities Scheme National Finds Adviser for post-Roman coinage.
All meetings are at 8.00pm on Fridays (unless otherwise stated) at Finstock Village Hall, OX7 3BU. Refreshments are available from 7.35pm.
