Thomas Cadbury from the Royal Albert Museum in Exeter, will deliver the first Lunchtime Lecture of the 2017 season on the subject of the Seaton Down Hoard.

The Seaton Down Hoard is now at RAMM.  With 22,888 Roman coins, it is by far the largest coin hoard found in Devon and the third largest ever found in Britain. The coins were found by a metal-detectorist in a field near Seaton. They are now one of the most important parts of the museum’s archaeology collection.

The hoard will be put on display in July 2017. At the moment the coins are being conserved but some are on display in the Behind the Scenes Gallery.

Coffee will be available from 10.45.

Please arrive in good time as the lectures are very popular and there are a limited number of seats.
