The Mint Methodist Church, Exeter

When a metal-detectorist discovered some Roman coins in a field overlooking Seaton he little realised that it would turn into a major archaeological discovery. A week later, once 22,888 coins had been uncovered, he had a fair idea ! The find is the third biggest in Britain and by far the largest in Devon. This talk will sketch out the Roman presence in Devon, from building the military fortress in Exeter in AD 50 to the burial of the Seaton Down Hoard in AD 350, at which point Roman influence takes a nosedive.

Thomas is a member of the curatorial team at Exeter’s Royal Albert Memorial Museum and has been at the museum since 2005. He originally came to be part of the museum’s major redevelopment that was completed in 2011 and then stayed ! His family is from Barnstaple and so it has been nice to return to Devon.
