FEATURED WEB SITE 

   This week's Featured Web Site is a news article from The 
   Independent: "A perfectly preserved hoard of gold coins, 
   which were hidden under the floorboards of a palatial Roman 
   villa 1,800 years ago, have been discovered by archaeologists. 

   The treasure, consisting of 43 Roman gold aurei dating from 
   AD60 to AD174, would have been worth the equivalent of 
   £60,000 when it was interred by wealthy Romano-Britons. 
   The 22-carat gold coins are one of just four comparable 
   hoards found in Britain and the first such treasure to be 
   unearthed in London. 

   Archaeologists from the Museum of London discovered 
   the gold in a small subterranean chamber under the long- 
   decayed floorboards of a once well-appointed Roman 
   town house, off what is now Fenchurch Street in the city 
   centre."
