Treasure hunter strikes gold in St Albans

A treasure hunter struck gold in a muddy Hertfordshire field. He found a stash of Roman coins in the field near St Albans. They have just gone on public display.

While the rest of us can now appreciate them for their historical and aesthetic value, the man who discovered them will soon be enjoying their financial value, sharing in thousands and thousands of pounds.
