Hoard of Roman coins found near Roman Baths in Bath

Last edited Sat Mar 24, 2012, 01:58 PM - Edit history (1)



More than 30,000 Roman coins have been found by archaeologists working on the site of a new hotel in Bath.

The silver coins are believed to date from 270AD and are being described as the fifth largest hoard ever found.

1. They're mine, sorry

damned coins always fall out of my pants when I get dressed after a bath and then I have a hard time picking them up off the flat floor.

I meant to come back for them but forgot.

2. Evidence of Roman pay toilets near Roman baths?



Might be one explanation for this cache of Roman coins...
