The Chew Valley hoard has greatly increased knowledge of the first English coinage of William I after his invasion of England in 1066 and the degree of continuity in mints and moneyers from the last coinage of Anglo-Saxon England. Single finds recorded by the Fitzwilliam Museum’s Corpus of Early Medieval Coin Finds (EMC) have provided many coins of mints or moneyers new to their coinage type between 1066 and the end of the English periodic recoinage system in 1158. Understanding of the complex regional coinages of the civil war of King Stephen’s reign (1135-54) has been considerably advanced by new finds.
