A man finds four coins. These coins are around 2,000 years old. These coins are from the Iron Age. One coin is Roman.

Experts come to the site. They start digging. They find more coins. Now they have 26 coins in total. This find is special because the coins are from two different cultures.

People clean the coins. They will be at a museum.

Difficult words: site (place), dig (look for something in the ground), find (something which you find), culture (group of people).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
