About the Seaton Down Hoard

The Seaton Down Hoard was discovered in November 2013 and has recently been purchased by RAMM for the benefit of the people of Devon and Exeter and for future generations. Around AD348, the 22,888 coins were buried, probably by a private individual or soldier for safe-keeping. They provide a fascinating glimpse into the world of 4th-century Roman Britain. The purchase and conservation of the hoard of coins was made possible by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Clinton Devon Estates, a private donation by Patrick Long and many contributions by members of the public.
