The Beau Street Hoard roadshow will be touring Bath and further this autumn, bearing with it the chance to get up and close and personal with 2,000-year-old silver Roman coins. The roadshow is part of a venture aimed at bringing communities closer to the 17,577 Roman coins that make up the astonishing Beau Street Hoard. The project is assisted by the Heritage Lottery Fund. At the roadshow, staff from the Roman Baths will bring out a selection of the hoard’s coins for handling. They will also provide a wealth of information, activities and displays so visitors can learn about this important find.
