Guest: Peter Guest, PhD, Senior Lecturer in Roman Archaeology, Director of Postgraduate School of History, Archaeology and Religion, Cardiff University, Wales Decades ago, in a village called Hoxne, near Suffolk, England, a man set out with a metal detector to find his lost hammer in a field. He eventually found it, but first, he stumbled on the largest Roman treasure cache ever discovered in Britain. Archaeologists have been puzzling over the “Hoxne Hoard” ever since.
