Roman artifacts found in England

Some very nice Roman artifacts have been located in Hertfordshire, England, dating to about 174 AD. The finds include some jugs, a bronze dish, found last year, and glass bottles and cups, an iron lamp, a box with bronze corners, a bronze coin, and two shattered but complete glass dishes from Alexandria, Egypt (these are a major find). The person who found them and the farmer who owns the land on which they were found co-own them, but a local museum is trying to raise funds to buy them.
