The Galloway Hoard

The Galloway Hoard is an extraordinary find of Viking-age gold, silver and jewelled treasures. It's the richest collection of rare and unique Viking-age objects ever found in Britain or Ireland. National Museums Scotland has been given the chance to save the Hoard for the nation. But to do that we have to raise £1.98million by November 2017. Here you can see some highlights from the Hoard, and you can find out more about how you can help at www.nms.ac.uk/hoard.
