ROMAN COIN HOARD FOUND IN CHICHESTER

Arthur Shippee forwarded this link from the Explorator newsletter
to a brief article about a recent Roman coin hoard find:

"A massive hoard of Roman coins has been unearthed by archaeologists
probing the former Shippams factory site in Chichester city centre.
Many have congealed together down the centuries, and an accurate
assessment cannot be given until restoration work is completed but
they run into many hundreds, and estimates are up to 2,500.

They are being X-rayed and examined this week to see how they
are stuck together and how they can be successfully taken apart."
