The Harptree Hoard was discovered in the village of East Harptree, England located South/Southwest of Bristol and Bath. The hoard was discovered in a pewter container which held 1496 coins, five silver ingots and a silver Roman ring with an intaglio gemstone depicting the god Mars. The landowner, William Kettlewell, made the coins available to the British Museum for study and the hoard was published by John Evans in his article, ‘On a Hoard of Roman Coins Found at East Harptree, Near Bristol’ in The Numismatic Chronicle and Journal of the Numismatic Society, Volume 8, 1888.
