Part 2 of this fantastic roman discovery filmed live probably the first time this has ever happened in the uk . Was this the life savings of a roman soldier posted here in the uk some 1800 years ago. Enjoy this unique video thanks to all who made this possible for the world too see.

  4. Congrats on the find. Here in south durham there’s no where to detect. Some farmers are down right abusive. Let us all know the outcome. Will it be posted on the Blaydon web site?

  7. @toll25 The romans were in this country for almost 500years with no banks, people buried there wealth out in the wilds away from prying eyes, this was common for most of the ancient periods of our history, it even happens today. This was a chance find on a club members friends farm. The landowner will get 50/50 split with any reward given by the treasure committiee. England was covered with roman farmsteads and settlements roads villas etc.We research and use google earth to see the clues .

  9. @Spartyguss How do you know where tho look for roman coins ect. Does the farmer have any rights to the hoard? Where you aware of any roman habitat in the area you were looking? Great find

  21. @oudzuidNL Its priceless I guess. Just another fantastic piece of our history rescued from the ground for all the nation and the world to see and study. Nearly all the fabulous hoards in our countries museums, to name a few like the HOXEN , SNETTISHAM, HARROGATE and the SAXON GOLD BATTLE RELICS. These were found in an open field were no structures or site is known & archaeologists would never dream to venture.
    This is why metal detecting is so important for our museums,arts,heritage & studies.
