Taynton Metal Detecting Club
In 1996 club founders Dave Hutton and Don Sherratt discovered a scattered hoard of Roman coins in Taynton. 180 Roman bronze coins were found in an area approximately 30m by 30m. A few small Severn Valley Ware pottery shards could be seen in the plough soil. Iron making slag (bloomery slag) and other furnace waste is evident in the soil. A bronze stylus and a few other Roman artefacts were found in the close vicinity.
