More British Carrier Bag Archaeology. 1,200 Gold Staters

Reactions of list members rather predictable:

Blimey! What a haul! £££££££ [emoticon], [emoticon], [emoticon]
A "major contribution to British numismatics" (sic) could be made by the same pile of loose coins on eBay. But that, and Nonnymuss's two carrier bag "haul" give zero information about the archaeology of the site he ripped them out of in September 2020. What kind of feature were they buried in? What relationship has that feature to any other stratigraphy- vertical or horizontal or spatial characteristics of that site? Was the hoard made as a single deposit, or was it added to periodically?
