A hoard of gold and silver Iron Age coins dating back to the dawn of the Roman conquest have been unearthed by metal detectorists in Lincoln.

Sean Scargill and Hugh Jenkins made the extraordinary discovery in a field near Riseholme.




The collection contained 282 coins with the stamped names of local rulers, dated before the Roman invasion of AD 43.

They were discovered in fragments of a pot.

The find will go out to valuation in two months.
