Unrest in the Roman Empire 1,700 years ago is the most likely explanation for a hoard of 30,000 coins found by archaeologists working at the site of a new city centre hotel in Bath, home of the famous Roman spa and baths (click here for our review).
The ‘Beau Street Hoard’ is the largest stash of Roman silver ever discovered in the UK. The coins have fused together into a single block of metal making it difficult for the London Museum in charge to count and identify the loot. By weight it is worth around $250,000.
