Take a look at this rather attractive pile of coins; who doesn’t like a bit of treasure? It’s actually a photo of the, a collection of 9,262 Roman silver denarii coins found at Shapwick on the Somerset Levels in 1998.
Where was it found?
The hoard was discovered by amateur metal detectorists in a field at Shapwick. They excavated it before reporting it to the Portable Antiquities Scheme. During later archaeological investigations it was shown to have been buried in the corner of a room of a previously unknown Roman courtyard villa.
