Quick Reference


Wrought iron bars found in the middle and later Iron Age of central and midland parts of England that are typically parallel‐sided strips of metal sometimes with the corners bent upwards at one end. They are assumed to be ingots of metal, although whether they ever had any value as currency as their name suggests is questionable.
