Why would a Roman gold coin be found at the site of a former Roman army encampment at Vindolanda along Hadrian’s Wall in Great Britain?
While archaeologists are expressing delight regarding the find, the press has been making statements that appear to be more conjecture than fact.
The coin is an About Good issue of Nero struck in AD 64 to 65 and is the only gold coin ever to be found at the stone fort at Vindolanda at Hadrian’s Wall.
Could this coin reveal something about history that we had yet to find out prior to this discovery? Archaeologists are searching for more information.
