The Seaton Down Hoard
Peter Hall, Budleigh Salterton
Speaker: Mr Thomas Cadbury, Curator RAMM Archaeology Collections
An illustrated talk on the Roman Hoard discovery by an amateur metal-detectorist near Seaton consisting of over 22,000 Roman coins, the largest such find in Devon, the third largest ever found in Britain. Why was it buried? Who buried it? Curators at RAMM say that the coins are now one of the most important parts of the museum’s archaeology collection.
