The hoard was discovered in 1807 close to the boundary between the parishes of Bossal and Flaxton. It consisted of coin, bullion and an arm ring in a leaden box.
There were c. 270 Anglo-Saxon and Anglo-Viking coins. There was at least one coin of Athelstan, and several of Edward the Elder, but most were Anglo-Viking coins, most being of the St Peter series.
