    More than 30,000 silver coins have been found by archaeologists working at the site of a new city-centre hotel.

    The hoard, believed to date from the third-century, was unearthed about 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 coins, which have now been sent to the British Museum for further analysis, are fused together in a large block.
