The British Numismatic Society is pleased to announce the availability of a new feature on its website which allows users to explore Medieval Coin Hoards in Britain and Ireland (“MCHBI”).
This brief article shows how to access the website and some examples of the products that can be generated. The facility should prove of interest to numismatists, historians, archaeologists and metal detectorists. With nearly 1900 hoards uploaded and increasing daily it is already the largest compilation of Medieval hoard data from Britain and Ireland, and will be continuously added to in order to keep it as up-to-date as possible.

Please could you send me the map of hoard’s found in Essex and Suffolk. Thanks. Roger
Roger, the whole idea is that you can design your own map on the new website and use your screen capture facility to capture your map. You can use the many different options to generate the map with whatever parameters you wish.
