This week's issue of The Explorator newsletter includes links to several articles about a huge hoard of coins unearthed in China.
An ancient kiln storing several tons of copper coins dating back to the Song Dynasty (960-1279) was excavated in Hua County of northwest China's Shaanxi Province on Dec. 22.
The kiln is 1 meter wide at the mouth, 2 meters wide at the belly and 3 meters deep. More than 20 kinds of copper coins were found in the kiln with a total weight of 3 tons.
