In England, during the Anglo-Saxon period, the main forms of taxation were land taxes, although custom duties and fees to mint coins were also imposed.

In the past taxes were also collected by tax farmers and shire sheriffs. They would have needed a pouch to carry all that extra coinage they gathered.

Handmade and contrasted of suede this exquisite bag is a must have to finish off any period costume whether man or women.
