ROMAN COIN HOARD UNEARTHED IN KENT

David Sundman forwarded this link to a BBC news article on a
Roman coin discovery in Kent:

"A digger being used by workmen on a building site in Kent has
unearthed 3,600 bronze Roman coins dating from AD330 to AD348."

"The workmen saw all these coins come pouring out of the digger
bucket," said Maidstone Museum's Laura McLean.

They will be transferred to the British Museum for cleaning
and recording.

It is then hoped the hoard of coins can be put on display in
Kent.

The county council's Andrew Richardson said: "In four years
of dealing with all the treasure in Kent I have never dealt
with anything on this scale."

"Dr Richardson said the coins featured the head of Roman Emperor
Constantine and other powerful figures from the time."
