Let G be a finite group. To a set of subgroups of order two we associate a mod 2 Hecke algebra and construct a homomorphism, ?, from its units to the class-group of Z[G]. We show that this homomorphism takes values in the subgroup, D(Z[G]). Alternative constructions of Chinburg invariants arising from the Galois module structure of higher-dimensional algebraic K-groups of rings of algebraic integers often differ by elements in the image of ?. As an application we show that two such constructions coincide.
