A coin from the hoard.
A picture of the first coin recorded at the start of the project.
And suddenly everything was different.
The metal detectorist who found the hoard joined a group of metal detectorists putting on a display in Chippenham, including a number of Roman coins.
Several volunteers joined up to give a talk at the Julia and Hans Rausing Building, and everyone had a chance afterwards to look at the coins and discuss the project.
Another school visit just before Christmas.
Preparations for Christmas are already in place.
Here are coins arriving at the conservation lab after packaging and labelling them. Every coin going to conservation gets individually recorded before processing.
