DISCOVER ROMAN COINS
Making a great archaeological find would be one of the most exciting things to happen to anyone. Unearthing a piece of our amazing planet’s past would be enough to fill almost anyone with a sense of joy and accomplishment. Well that’s precisely what happened to these construction workers in Spain. They were going about their day as if it was any other, when all of a sudden they made an absolutely incredible discovery. A discovery so big they couldn’t even unearth the whole thing! Check out what they found below.
The workers were digging a ditch to run electricity to a park when they came across these old-looking pots. These pots are actually called amphoras, and they were made during the time when Rome ruled much of Europe. There actually turned out to be 19 of these amphoras in the area. All of them were full to the brim with bronze Roman Empire coins.
The coins date back to around the 3rd or 4th century A.D. The surprising thing is that researchers say that these coins were never in actual circulation. The coins feature emperors Maximian and Constantine and are worth at least several million euros!
