Roman Coins in Hockwold

At Leyland's farm, Hockwold cum Wilton, four diadems and a crown were found in the ploughsoil. Subsequent excavations discovered a fifth diadem, and a possible favissa, the building within a temple enclosure where sacred objects were stored. It was built about 200 AD and used until the late 4th century. The priestly headgear, an unusual brooch group, possible votives and a large number of coins confirm the interpretation of the temple site. The finds suggest a connection with the Eastern cult of Attis and Cybele.
