Very old coins – level 2

16-07-2014 07:00

A climber discovered three Iron Age coins and a Roman coin a year ago. The coins have been at the site for more than 2,000 years.

Scientists came to the site and launched an excavation. They found more coins. They found twenty-six coins so far. Scientists say that this is a very unusual find. This was the first time that coins from two civilisations were found in one place.

People cleaned the coins and the coins will be displayed at a museum.

Difficult words: launch (start), excavation (digging), civilization (a big group of people).

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