Exciting new project! The Beau Street Hoard

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.
