228 roman coins found by a metal detectorist between Selkirk and Hawick have gone on display at a local museum.

The antique hoard is now on pubic view at the Trimontium Museum in Melrose.

David and Rosie Jones have been to look at the coins, they said:

"It is fascinating, and another link with the Roman past in the Borders.

"I wonder what else is lying out there unfound. It also makes me wonder about who put them there and why they were hoarded. It is amazing to think they have lasted 2000 years."
