The Killingholme Hoard, Deposited c. A.D.  333-334 (North Lincolnshire, England)
 
The hoard was discovered by metal detectorists in 1993 near the village of Killingholme, which is situated on the south bank of the Humber estuary, near to the modern Immingham docks. The find consisted of approximately 3700 Constantinian bronze reduced folles, mainly from mints in the Western empire and predominately struck in the A.D. 320's and early 330's. It is likely that the hoard was deposited c. A.D 333-334. Killingholme is about 10-12 miles due east-south-east of the point where the Roman road now called 'Ermine Street' crossed the Humber estuary, with a ferry service between modern Winteringham and Peturia (modern Brough-on-Humber). The road was the main north-south route in eastern England.
The find was reported and studied by the British Museum before being returned to the finders and released into the numismatic trade.
