Coins of the Beauvais Hoard
An interesting hoard of coins related to the English anarchy is known as the "Beauvais"
hoard because some of the European coins found in the hoard are from the French
abbey located in Beauvais. The actual location where the hoard was found is
unknown, but the site has been attributed by several sources to an area in or
near Paris. The research contained here was undertaken to try to answer two questions:
how/why was this hoard accumulated, and how did it end up in or near Paris?
