1 - 2 Weken

Published to celebrate the centenary of the discovery of the Traprain Hoard, in East Lothian, Scotland, May 1919 - one of the most spectacular finds of Roman silver ever, and the biggest hoard of 'hacksilver': 23kg, battered, crushed and chopped up. New studies show that this was no act of destruction but a deliberate Roman policy.
