AN ANCIENT hoard of Roman coins worth hundreds of pounds was unearthed in a farmer’s field in Sheffield - and has now been declared treasure.

The five republican silver denarii were discovered by a metal detector enthusiast on land at Plumbley Hall Farm, Plumbley, near Mosborough.

The find was reported to the authorities before the coins were seized by the British Museum - and yesterday assistant deputy coroner David Urpeth ruled the valuable currency was the property of the Crown.
