In 2007 and 2008 a total of 52 coins, t.p.q. 1035, and a silver armring was found at Hellerö, Västra Ed, par., Småland. This is the first Viking-Age hoard to be found in the province for half a century. The hoard is located in a area (Tjust) which is rich in coin finds from the Roman Iron Age until the Middle Ages. The investigation showed that the site had been destroyed when earth was removed and no original context at the site could be observed. The regional context is discussed, and potential port sites can be found in the area. The coins, mainly German (43) and English (5) are listed. In addition a coin struck in 1592 was found.
