Archaeologists discovered 26 coins, including three Roman coins which pre-date the invasion of Britain in AD43, and 20 other gold and silver pieces which are Late Iron Age and thought to belong to the Corieltavi tribe. Although Roman coins have often been found in fields, this is understood to be the first time they have been unearthed in a cave.
