A shortage of small change in the England of the 1650s and 1660s was solved by local traders issuing their own tokens.
These farthings and halfpennies were issued by many individuals across Norfolk, including John Wilch and Richard Shaw at Cley.
Adrian will talk about the background behind these tokens series and will look at the Cley issues in particular.

Tuesday 26 March 2019 7:30pm
The Paston Letters provide a unique commentary on the Wars of the Roses at both a national and a local level.
The Letters record the changing fortunes of ‘House Paston’ as the family navigated their way through their various sieges and confrontations with the Dukes of Suffolk and Norfolk at Gresham Castle, Hellesdon Manor and Caister Castle.
What little conflict actually took place in Norfolk invariably involved the Paston Family.
