At least 40 well preserved Roman period coins have been found in west Oxfordshire.

The items were found by metal detectorists working with permission in a field at Walcot, near Charlbury.

The coins and a block of earth containing more coins were examined by a group of archaeologists and taken to the British Museum.
Rob Stepney lives nearby and joined the detectorists as they made their find. He said: "It was one of the most exciting days of my life and I was lucky to be in the right place at the right time. I was the first person to touch the coin in 1700 years and that felt lucky."
