A British metal detector using geek has found a once in a lifetime treasure. The treasure was a pot filled with over 52,000 Roman coins. The coins were buried several hundred years after the death.

The man was using his metal detector in a field in south-west England when he found the coins. The coins were sealed inside a pot and archeologists believe that the pot was buried and not meant to be dug up.

The coins may have been an offering to pagan Roman deities. The coins are estimated to be worth a million dollars today. The finder and the person owning the field will split the money from the discovery.
