St Barbe Museum to acquire Celtic coins

A Hampshire museum is determined to raise the £40,000 needed to buy and exhibit a “unique” hoard of almost 270 gold and silver coins. The Celtic coins were unearthed in a muddy field not far from St Barbe Museum and Art Galley three years ago. The British Museum has ruled that the find is treasure trove, which means half of it belongs to the people who found it and half to the landowner.
