The hoard, made up of 440 silver denarii coins was uncovered during an archaeological dig at a Roman site on the Edge Hill in 2015. They were buried in a ceramic pot over 1900 years ago, under the floor of a building.
It has been declared as Treasure and now Warwickshire Museum needs to raise £62,000 to acquire the hoard for the county. We have four months to raise the cash. Applications have already been submitted to major grant givers, and condition of the purchase is that a minimum of £3,000 needs to be raised locally.
