Article | Coin hoard is to stay in the county

Published by Worcester News, written by Sarah Taylor, Tuesday 27th November 2012

A HOARD of Roman coins discovered in Worcestershire will stay in the county after Museums Worcestershire raised £9,000 in an appeal to secure the find in the county where it was discovered.

The collection of about 4,000 coins, found on Bredon Hill in June last year, is the largest haul of treasure ever found in the county.

The money has been raised through private donations, a donation by the Worcestershire Archaeological Society of £1,000 and a grant from the V&A Purchase Grant Fund, which was confirmed this week.
