Percy Manning recorded a number of archaeological finds at Wallingford. The most prominant of these being a late Bronze Age hoard found in the River Thames just below Wallingford Bridge. The hoard included bronze axes, a chisel, a gouge, a razor, a knife, a spearhead and a leaf-shaped sword. The sword is now held by Reading Museum but the rest of the hoard is in the Ashmolean Museum (AN1927.207-2711). Another part of the hoard was in the collection of Rev. J.C. Clutterbuck and given to the Ashmolean Museum in 1908 (AN 1896-1908 PR372-375).
