Lets cite some more great discoveries made in the world of archeology that were recently published.
During an exploratory dig relating to new building, a treasure trove of Roman coins and jewelry was discovered.
Around 140 silver and gold coins have been discovered – some in pristine condition.
The discovery of coins is always important because it not only confirms rulers but defines power and economic bases and their influences.
This discovery was made under a layer of floor which could imply something as simple as the owner hid their wealth – or alternately the thief hid their horde.
