Abstract

More than a hundred places are named in the reverse inscriptions of Anglo-Saxon pennies minted between the 970s and 1066. About three quarters of these can be confidently associated with a modern location. Much effort has been spent on the other unidentified mint-places, and probably none has attracted more attention than Geoðaburh. It is thought (for reasons laid out below) to have been situated somewhere in south-west England, probably in Devonshire, but a specific attribution has proven elusive. This short contribution reviews the numismatic evidence and previous suggestions for its identification, and finally proposes a new attribution.
