Rare Roman treasure found in Colchester excavation

First published Wednesday 3 September 2014 in News by Wendy Brading

A WEALTHY Roman woman's jewellery has been found during excavations in Colchester.

The remarkable find is thought to be one of the finest of its kind ever discovered in Britain.

Archaeologists believe it may have been buried for safe keeping before the town was destroyed by Boadicea's marauding armies.

The cache of jewellery, found by Colchester Archaeological Trust at Williams and Griffin department store, includes three gold armlets, a silver chain necklace, two silver bracelets, a silver armlet and a small bag of coins.

There was also a small jewellery box containing two sets of gold earrings and four gold finger rings.
