Number 25: The Frome Hoard

The largest hoard of Roman coins from a single pot ever found in Britain. Dave Crisp discovered the hoard in Frome, Somerset, in 2009 and immediately stopped digging and contacted his Finds Liaison Officer (FLO), Katie Hinds. Among the over 52,000 coins in the hoard were a large number of the Emperor Carausius, including four of the finest silver examples seen in Britain.
