Out of Place Chinese Coins Prompt Wonder: Did Medieval Asia and Britain Interact?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


The worn cast copper alloy Chinese coin, from the Northern Song dynasty (960 AD to 1127 AD), minted during the Xining reign between 1068 and 1077 AD, and found in Britain

Britain’s antiquities experts have mostly written them off as a loss from a curated collection, but the presence of two Chinese Northern Song dynasty (960 – 1127 AD) coins unearthed at separate sites in England have people wondering about the links between Medieval Asia and Britain. A Cambridge University archaeologist says these coins support the idea that Britain and east Asian groups were interacting in 13th and 14th century.

Are the Ancient Chinese Coins Genuine Losses?

The first coin was found in 2018 in Cheshire and is the first known example of a Chinese coin from the Northern Song dynasty period discovered in England, according to News.com.au. The Independent reports that the previous discovery is now joined by another 25mm copper-alloy coin that was recently discovered in a field in Buriton, near Petersfield, in Hampshire.
