069 About the year 1821-22. while the workmen were employed building a stone dyke here. and collecting stones from a Craig or Cairn adjoining. they discovered a great number of Silver Coins. and a Gold. and a Silver rings. The number of Coins found cannot be assertained but they were very numerous. and found at Subsequent periods. The date or reign of the coins cannot distinctly be made out. But appears to be those of Edward I. the inscription as near as can be made out is E.D.W. R.A.N.G.L. D.N.S. The reverse bears a St George's Cross. and twelve roundlets. probably. Bezants three in each quarter where the cross intersects. Surrounded by the inscription C.I.V.I.T.A.S. The size of some of them were nearly as large as a shilling and others. as sixpence.
