More than 30,000 Roman silver coins dating back to 270AD have been discovered near the site of ancient Roman baths say archeologist working on the dig site.

The coins were found about 450 feet from the site of the historic Roman Baths and have now been sent to the British Museum where conservators will sort through them and work to preserve them. Many were stuck together. The collection will be sent back to an Italian museum once they are cleaned and cataloged.

It is believed this is the fifth largest Roman coin discovery to date.
