Did you know?

The Corieltauvi were a largely agricultural people who had been producing coins since the beginning of the 1st century.

Description

The Coritani were a Belgic tribe which occupied parts of middle-eastern England now known as the counties of Leicestershire, Rutland, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, and probably parts of Derbyshire and the southern part of the West Riding of Yorkshire. At one time this type, together with others of the Ancient British series, were ascribed to the Brigantes, a tribe occupying parts of Yorkshire and territory north thereof.
