Hoard of Roman coins discovered

United Kingdom,Human Interest/Society, Fri, 23 Mar 2012 IANS

London, March 23 (IANS) More than 30,000 silver Roman coins have been found by archaeologists at the site of a new city-centre hotel in Britain.

 

The hoard, believed to date from the third century, was unearthed about 450 feet from the historic Roman Baths, The Telegraph reported Friday.

 

Experts believe the "treasure trove" is the fifth largest hoard ever discovered in Britain and the largest from a Roman settlement.

 

The coins, which have now been sent to the British Museum for further analysis, are fused together in a large block.

 

This makes identification and counting difficult and conservators at central London Museum expect the task of analysing the coins to take up to 12 months.
