I wish they would have shown more coin cleaning in their YouTube presentation.

That was a very nice You Tube video clip and I encourage everyone to tune in. I envey Ms. Jo Lyon and her staff myself. Thanks for the interesting post.
By chance, here in South Florida, our Public Tele station, channel 2, had a remarkable program on "Stonehenge" and the newly evaluation of the purpose, how it was erected, and treatment of the monument. For those able to view, please watch that one too.

I believe I saw two dupondii - first a Trajan and at the end an Antoninus Pius. Anyone else agree/disagree?

Thank you, James. That was really an amazing story. Fascinating artefacts. Strewn bodies, medical instruments, cleavers.. What was this place, I wonder.

Doug, I think you got it. As it seems to me the first coin as it appears has TRAIAN at 10 and 11 o'clock and the second one has VS PP TR in a distinct (in my humble opinion) Antoninus Pius fashion.
