Silver hoard linked to Kett's Rebellion

A small hoard of silver found in 2011 by metal detector enthusiasts Steven Clarkson and Mark Turner has been linked to Kett's Rebellion, the 1549 uprising against "rich robber barons who had stolen the common land, leaving the peasants to starve." (photo)

The 14 silver groats were discovered in Wymondham, England, and are believed to have been part of a larger hoard. The coins have been declared treasure.
