Dovedale Roman and Iron Age coins found after 2,000 years

A precious hoard of Roman and Late Iron Age coins has been discovered in a cave where it has lain undisturbed for more than 2,000 years.

The treasure trove was initially unearthed by a member of the public, who stumbled across four coins in the cave in Dovedale, Derbyshire.

The discovery prompted a full-scale excavation of the site.

Experts say it is the first time coins from these two separate civilisations have been buried together.

Does the person who found them get to keep them?

No, because they have been declared treasure they will go to a museum, although the finder may be given a financial reward of the market value of the coins.
