During ploughing in February 1975, a hoard of 4th century Roman silver was found, known as the ‘Water Newton Treasure’. It was probably buried by an inhabitant of the nearby Roman fortified garrison town of Durobrivae. It included the earliest group of Christian liturgical silver found in the Roman Empire. It is now in the British Museum.
