Grand documentOriginal passage from the "Grand document".

'The surviving material for the chapter [in Aubrey's planned Monumenta Britannica] on ‘Coynes’ consists of a series of notes and pieces of information given to him by others. ... The papers are not very extensive in quantity, and comprise a mixture of many notes in his own hand about the Heddington hoard, and various other finds from Wiltshire, Kent, Suffolk, Surrey, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Ireland; a series of letters from Sir James Long, giving a full account of Roman coins from Wanborough and a mention of others from near Bristol; another series of letters from Andrew Paschal, Rector of Chedzoy, covering 1670 to 1689, concerning Roman coin moulds from Somersetshire, with some of Aubrey’s own notes; and a copy of the article by Philip Skippon from the Philosophical Transactions about an Anglo-Saxon coin found in Suffolk.' (Burnett 2020b, pp. 712-13)
