Thornbury’s Roman Coin Hoard

Exhibition: Tue 19 Apr 2022 - Tue 19 Dec 2023
Venue: The Museum Admission: FREE

In 2004, a local Thornbury man was digging a garden pond and came upon a Roman coin hoard.

He reported the find and the 11,460 copper alloy Roman coins were in due course declared ‘treasure’.

Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery bought the hoard and they hold the majority of it but a selection of the coins is on loan to Thornbury & District Museum.

Come and discover the story of the hoard.

Who knows?  You might find something when you’re digging your own garden!
