Tyne and Wear HER(909): South Shields, Trow Rocks, Roman coins - Details
South Shields, Trow Rocks, Roman coins
There were several recorded finds of Roman coins from Trow Rocks between 1903 and 1910, Bidwell listing 30. At least some of these finds are thought to have been dredged from the River Tyne near the Swing Bridge in Newcastle, since it is recorded that material dredged from the river was tipped on the beach at Trow Rocks. The present location of the coins is obscure.
