The Anglo-Saxon Sceattas
Kentish Primary Sceattas c. 690 – 710
The secondary sceattas (c. 710) introduced many new designs and many new mint sites in Wessex, Eastern Mercia and Northumberland. There is still uncertainty about the issuing authorities behind the secondary sceattas. Some issues are so large that only a major ruler could have produced them, while others were produced on a very small scale indeed.
