Roman coins found may have links to Boudicca

Recommended Posts

A hoard of Roman coins found in a field may have been hidden there during the Boudiccan revolt, an expert has said.

The trove of 60 denarii, dating between 153BC and AD60-61, was found in a field near Cookley, in Suffolk, by a metal detectorist.

Queen Boudicca led the Iceni tribe against the Romans in AD61 which led to the destruction of Colchester.

Most of the coins dated from the Republic era, pre-27BC, but there were also denarii minted during the reigns of emperors Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula and Nero.

It would be sooo awesome if they finally found archaeological evidence of that. 

.....It would be more awesome if they made a movie about it where the Celtic Britons weren't dressed in rags and were well groomed as archaeology has already proven. :yes:

Pfft. Those barbarian heathen savages wore /pants/. 

Pants! Not a shred of decency in the blue-painted lot. The Romans were undoubtedly right to collectively smite them.
