London, Mar 23 (ANI): More than 30,000 silver coins have reportedly been unearthed during an archaeological dig in Bath.
One of the largest hoards of Roman coins discovered in Britain has been discovered by archaeologists working at the site of a new city-centre hotel.
The hoard, believed to date from the third-century, was found around 450 feet from the historic Roman Baths.
Experts believe the "treasure trove" is the fifth largest hoard ever discovered in Britain and the largest from a Roman settlement, the Telegraph reported.
The coins, which have been sent to the British Museum for further analysis, are fused together in a huge block.
This has made identification and counting difficult and conservators at central London Museum expect that the task of analysing the coins would take around 12 months. (ANI)
