Exciting new project! The Beau
This unique 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.
A series of events is planned as part of this project including
an exciting range of hands-on coin activities,
designed to encourage people’s understanding and interest in
archaeology and local heritage. Events include drop-in
workshops with coin handling, mobile road
shows to locations across Bath and North East Somerset,
new educational resources for young visitors,
long-term projects with community partners and a range of public
talks, presentations and symposia. There is something to interest
everyone, from the casual visitor to the coin expert.
