|Recurring Event (See all)

The Beau Street Hoard was excavated by archaeologists on the site of the new Gainsborough Hotel in Beau Street, Bath in 2007 and is one of the most remarkable archaeological discoveries to have been made in Bath in recent times.

The 17,577 silver Roman coins span the period from 32BC – 274AD and were found in eight separate money bags, which were fused together. Conservators at The British Museum had to extract each individual coin in a delicate process.
