Silver Money found after 1,700 years, and it is still valuable!

More than 30,000 silver coins have reportedly been unearthed during an archaeological dig in Bath.

One of the largest hoards of Roman coins discovered in Britain has been discovered by archaeologists working at the site of a new city-centre hotel.

The hoard, believed to date from the third-century, was found around 450 feet from the historic Roman Baths.

Experts believe the "treasure trove" is the fifth largest hoard ever discovered in Britain and the largest from a Roman settlement, the Telegraph reported.

The coins, which have been sent to the British Museum for further analysis, are fused together in a huge block.This has made identification and counting difficult and conservators at central London Museum expect that the task of analysing the coins would take around 12 months.

101 East - India's coal rush

So India is planning to build another 175 Coal fired power stations, in addition to those they already have. Australia's response is to tax our 40 or so coal fired power stations and other heavy industry, which of course the people will end up paying. I am so disgusted with our tax thieving, want to be communists we have in power in this country, not that the other side is any better, they all think taxes are good. Taxes are evil period. More people in more places have risen up over taxes than for any other reason.
