900 year old gold coins found in well

December 5, 2018

A small number of gold coins believed to have been hidden 900 years ago has been discovered by archaeologists in the ancient Israeli port city of Caesarea.

The gold was found – along with a single gold earring – in a bronze pot between stones in the side of a well.

In total 24 coins appear to have been hidden by someone who hoped to retrieve it, but never returned.

Archaeologists say the owner may have died when the city’s inhabitants were massacred by a Crusader army in 1101.

The discovery was made during an excavation and conservation project at the Caesarea World Heritage site.
