Final coins to removed from Celtic hoard

The final pieces of treasure will be removed from Jersey's ancient coin hoard today.

The discovery in 2012 was the largest trove of Celtic coins ever found.

The cluster of Roman and Iron Age coins had lain hidden for up to 2,000 years.

Archaeologists have since been working to pick it apart to uncover its treasures.

Today, after nearly three years and 70,000 coins the conservation team will be separating the very last few pieces this afternoon.
