You can help save this unique treasure hoard, but there isn’t much time. Donate now to secure the Hoard and unlock its secrets.

The Hoard is an unparalleled find of Viking-age gold, silver and jewelled treasures and the richest collection of rare and unique Viking-age objects ever found in Britain or Ireland.

To save the Hoard for the nation we must raise £1.98million ($2.55million) by 12 November 2017.

Nothing like this has ever been found in Scotland. The stories it can tell will expand our knowledge of the Viking Age. If we fail to secure the Hoard, we will lose all that understanding and information.
