Silver denarii found near Yeovil

A pretty exciting find of silver denarii has just been reported to have been discovered on a building site in Yeovil. We’re not sure where the find is, but the 3335 coins are reported by the Central Somerset Gazette to be of second or third century date. Therefore they probably pre-date the villa at Lufton. Nevertheless, they’re further evidence of Roman activity in this bit of southern Somerset.

In other news James and Andy are beginning to see the pieces of the puzzle fall into place. Perhaps we will be digging the villa this Summer… watch this space!
