Aston Rowant

Aston Rowant is a village and civil parish about 4+1/2mi south of Thame in South Oxfordshire, England. The parish includes the villages of Aston Rowant and Kingston Blount, and adjoins Buckinghamshire to the southeast. The 2011 Census recorded the parish's population as 793.The Lower Icknield Way passes through the parish southeast of the village. Aston Rowant National Nature Reserve, on the Chiltern escarpment, is partly in the parish.ArchaeologyNear the close of the seventeenth century a large Roman vessel, containing five smaller ones, was discovered at Kingston Blount. In 1971 a hoard of late seventh- and early eighth-century silver coins called sceattas was found on the Chiltern escarpment within the ambit of the area, near where the A40 road crosses the Icknield Way. In 1972 the hoard was reported to total 175 coins, by 1994 the total was 350, and either case it was then the largest single find of sceattas in Britain. A Coroner's Court determined that the coins are treasure trove, and the British Museum then acquired the hoard.
