Corona Virus Update

Buying from us

We continue to operate here at Silbury Coins in these unprecedented times, albeit working from home. You can still buy items on our website as usual. Shipping may take a little longer as we are making fewer trips to the post office and some postal services are operating a reduced service. We will keep you updated at every step of the order/shipping process. If you have any questions regarding shipping you can contact Lucy (lucy@silburycoins.com) or John (info@silburycoins.com) and they will be happy to help. 

We are closely monitoring the postal service and will update on any changes, if you'd prefer we can safely store your items until a later date, just ask.

Roman

It is generally accepted that the Roman period in Britain starts in AD43 and ends in AD410. The Roman Empire has produced a vast range of artefacts, many of which have survived to the present day. The majority of Roman artefacts found in Britain (Romano-British) are manufactured from copper alloy, it is less common to find Roman silver and gold artefacts. Amongst the more prolific metal artefacts are personal objects, in particular brooches, finger rings, dress pins; together with domestic items such as keys, knives and religious objects such as votive offerings. In the case of brooches, many types existed across the Empire and styles changed with fashion, particularly notable are the animal series which are well suited to a themed collection. Many of these artefacts were decorated with coloured enamels, a technique perfected by Celtic craftsmen prior to the Roman invasion, hence combinations of native and classical Roman art are often seen in local products. Not surprisingly, condition is very important and good metal with an attractive patina together with appealing decoration is most desirable. We offer a range of affordable examples portraying Roman daily life. All are unconditionally guaranteed as genuine.
