Wrexham Heritage Society and Find of the Quarter

Nice one Steve!; photo 2996-0005 © CPAT

Early October saw CPAT staff visiting the Wrexham Heritage Society to borrow artefacts for recording on the Portable Antiquities Scheme database and to award the third Find of the Quarter certificate.

Club secretary Steve was the recipient this quarter for his discovery of a silver penny of the Saxon King Coenwulf of Mercia AD796-821. One of only 24 on the PAS database and so far the only one found in Wales, nice one Steve!

See the full record of Steve's Coenwulf penny here.
