Half a ton of 'hugely important' Roman coins have been discovered in Spain by construction workers.

The some 600kg of Roman bronze coins were discovered during routine building work stored inside 19 Roman amphoras. They are now being examined by experts at the Seville’s Archeology Museum who have estimated that the hoard could be worth ''several million euros.''
