Mr. David Crisp had traipsed about with his metal detector for over two decades, in the hope of discovering hidden treasure, before in the space of one week he found two rare Roman treasure troves.
One summers afternoon 2010, in a Somerset meadow, David Crisp found 52,000 Romano-British coins, the second-largest such hoard of its kind ever unearthed – and presently on exhibit in the British Museum.
As Roger Bland, the museum’s head of portable antiquities, says, “This find presents us with the opportunity to put Carausius on the map. Schoolchildren across the country have been studying Roman Britain for decades, but have never been taught about Carausius – our lost emperor.” – Taken from the second article by Alan Clayson
