Beau Street Hoard stories

As part of our Beau Street Hoard project we have been working with MA Writing for Young People students from Bath Spa University.  They have written four short stories based on the remarkable hoard of 17, 577 silver Roman coins which were found in Bath in 2007. It is one of the most remarkable archaeological discoveries to have been made in Bath in recent times.  The coins span the period from 32BC – 274AD and were found in eight separate money bags. Visit our children's page to read the stories.

Outreach session - we come to you. Focus on pre-history with our new History curriculum session. Handle original and replica artefacts and enjoy a range of hands-on activities at school.
