Did you know there were over 1000 Roman sites in England and Wales?

The numerous discoveries of Roman finds, often by private metal detectors,  have revealed more than 1,000 Roman sites in England and Wales, often in places where archaeologists were not looking. While the objects include artworks, inscribed bronze tablets and military equipment, many sites have been identified by clusters of low-value coins . Interestingly, there are many more finds from the Roman period than from any other before 1650 perhaps reminding us of the enormous impact the Romans had on British life.
