In the course of their dig, in preparation for our new building, archaeologists have found a number of Roman items of interest.
One is a roman kiln (pictured), while another is a coin from the reign of Emperor Constantine I (306-337). The coin shows Constantine triumphing over the Sarmatians in 322. The coin was struck at the mint of Trier on the Moselle, then made its way to Oxford where it has been sitting ever since. In a peculiar coincidence, the coin was found directly under where our Year 4 classroom used to be, and where many boys encountered the Romans for the first time.
