"Amateur metal detecting enthusiast Keith Bennett discovered a total of 1,141 Roman denarii, or silver coins, in a field last July.

The coins, stashed in a clay urn and buried around four feet underground, date from between 206 BC and 195 BC."

Couple nice pictures, but the one with the trove of coins in the dirt must have just been recreated for the photo since there is blue green corrosion on some of the coins. Doubt they popped out of ground like that. 4 feet deep would have made for exciting digging.
