The Antiquary (Jun 1894) - Quarterly Notes on Roman Britain: Yorkshire

The following is a transcription of a historic article and may contain occasional errors.


At Honley, near Huddersfield, on the estate of Mr. William Brooke, J.P., several Roman coins have been found, including silver and copper of Nero, in a hollow underneath tree-roots; the copper seems to have been first or second brass. At Scarborough two illegible Roman coins have been found, one a first brass, probably of the first century, at the foot of the hill to the left of the race-course, the other a third-century third brass found on the beach. Mr. R. C. Hope, F.S.A., was kind enough to show me both coins. Scarborough does not appear to have been in any real sense a Roman or Romano-British site.
