From Saxon Settlement to Medieval Market Town

0.800m x 2.600m
This mosaic design shows two sides of a Saxon coin, found on Biggleswade Common and now in the British Museum. The central image refers to the early farmers and the granting of a market by King John (1199 - 1216). The Saxon name Biccle’s Waed, which means Biccel’s ford, appears above the figures and above all is a Saxon spearhead.
