ROMAN coins will be displayed for a short time at a museum.

The coins from the Bredon Hoard will be at the Broadway Museum and Art Gallery until the end of May.

Visitors can learn more about the discovery of the hoard at a talk on Thursday May 18 at the museum.

The talk will be given by Deborah Fox, curator of archaeology and natural history at Museums Worcestershire and Angie Bolton, finds liaison officer for Warwickshire and Worcestershire at the Portable Antiquities Scheme.

Two metal detectorists discovered the hoard, the largest ever found in Worcestershire, in June 2011.

The hoard dates back to the 3rd Century and features 16 different Roman Emperors.

Following the discovery, the county archaeology service took over the excavation and it became evident that not only had a hoard been found but also a settlement site with a long and intriguing history.

The museum will be open from 6.30pm and the talk will begin at 7pm.

The museum is located at Tudor House in High Street, Broadway.
