- Curator's comments
- The hoard was found in December 1931 in the parish of Towednack, Cornwall, by Mr. Berrymans during the clearing away of a soil and stones bank. It lay undisturbed from 1 foot 6 inches to 2 feet down from the top surface of the bank, on the natural ground surface under the bank. In May 1932 the farmer Mr. Hollow was at work on the same piece of ground and among the stones and the debris of the broken bank he turned up a ninth piece of gold (1932,1004.1), at the same spot of the original find, or very close to it.
