You have helped us save the Galloway Hoard!

The Hoard will now be protected for generations to come and work can begin to unlock its secrets. 

Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we can now start an exciting programme of conservation and research, uncovering new connections and revealing insights into a previously hidden past.

Why is the Hoard important?

The Galloway Hoard is an unparalleled treasure hoard of Viking-age gold, silver and jewelled treasures. It is the richest collection of rare and unique Viking-age objects ever found in Britain or Ireland. Of international significance, it will transform our understanding of this period of Scottish history.
