THE Worcestershire Hoard is on its way back to the county and will soon be going on display.

The largest haul of treasure ever found in the county, a stash of almost 4,000 Roman coins discovered by metal detecting enthusiasts on Bredon Hill in June, 2011, will be put on show at the County Museum at Hartlebury from Saturday, March 9.

It will be displayed in its unconserved state while fund-raising continues to enable Museums Worcestershire to conserve the coins and display them around the county.
