A father and son found eight late Roman coins which archaeologists believe came from a hoard near Mildenhall, an inquest has heard.

The silver coins, known as siliquae, were discovered by Steve Foster and his son Nick in December last year. Yesterday an inquest at Bury St Edmunds was told by Faye Munter from Suffolk County Council’s archaeological service that the rest of the hoard is in Mildenhall Museum which was hoping to acquire the latest find. Suffolk coroner Dr Peter Dean declared the eight coins as treasure.
