Many Harold II pennies come from the Upper Chancton Farm hoard found in 1866, which was said to have contained 36 coins of Lewes from the reigns of Edward the Confessor and Harold II, which in all probability is an underestimation. Furthermore the wider hoard record shows a concentration of finds in Sussexthat further skews the numismatic data for Lewes.
