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.
