Surrey Online: Roman Treasure Trove Discovered in Surrey

One of the largest caches of Roman coins ever discovered has been found on a farm near Leigh, England.

Martin Adams, using a metal detector, recently found nearly 60 silver denarii dating to 30 BCE on a farm in Surrey, England. Adams, along with several other members of his metal detecting club, was sweeping the field when he made his discovery. Also found were pot fragments which are believed to have contained the money.
