We all grew up hearing the story of rags and riches and how they hid their gold from the enemy. So, it is only natural that we all had a dream to hunt down these hidden treasures. There are plenty of movie plots based on this theme and lots of great stories about treasure turning up where you least expect it.
It turns out there is definitely something to the tale of buried wealth and a discovery in Spain backs it up. Some workers were installing a waterline in Tomaras, Seville. The construction workers were digging a ditch for the pipeline when they came across strange noise. “The machines hit against something that wasn’t normal for this soil. They immediately stopped working to investigate,” said Vallejo.
Everyone was stunned to discover amphoras filled with ancient coins. A total of 19 jars were all filled to the brim with coins veiled safely under the soil. The discovery was sent to Seville’s archaeology department. Navarro, the head, stated, “The coins are worth several million Euros. Most of them were newly coined and bathed in silver than bronze.”
The inscriptions made in the coins suggest its origin back to the 3rd century. Out of the 19 jugs, ten were broken during the construction, but the remaining nine were safe and untouched. Watch the full video below and please leave us a Facebook comment to let us know what you thought!
