A rare hoard of Roman coins has been found in Bath at the site of a new city centre hotel.Around 150 coins have so far been unearthed in the run-up to work on the new Gainsborough Hotel and Thermal Spa.
But the Lower Borough Walls site is expected to yield more than 1,000 coins once the whole haul has been examined.
The find has been greeted with excitement by archaeologists because some of the coins are thought to date from the middle of the third century, one of the most poorly represented periods for coins in Britain.
