1 9 Celtic coins were discovered while metal detecting on land near Bedworth (SP 37 87). A further coin & a coin fragment were found a few days later. The find was reported to the Warwickshire Museum. The 10 coins & 1 fragmentary coin are all gold 'staters' issued by the Corieltauvi tribe, who lived in what is now Lincolnshire & Leicestershire. The coins were struck during the period 50 BC - AD 20. Scientific analysis of similar coins indicates that approximately half the metal content is of gold or silver & the other half copper.

Word or Phrase
period Iron Age About 800 BC to 43 AD

The Iron Age comes after the Bronze Age and before the Roman period. It is a time when people developed the skills and knowledge to work and use iron, hence the name ‘Iron Age’ which is given to this period. Iron is a much tougher and more durable metal than bronze but it also requires more skill to make objects from it. People continued to use bronze during this period.
