Title:Barnstaple, a Mint Town in Anglo-Saxon and Early Norman Times
Originator:Wainwright, T.
Summary:Barnstaple was a Mint Town in Saxon and medieval times. Until recently Anglo-Saxon coins with mint marks Bear, Bard and Bearda have been assigned to Bardney, Lincolnshire. But the most eminent numismatic authorities concur that they should be assigned to Barnstaple.
