The Galloway Hoard
The Galloway Hoard is the richest collection of rare and unique Viking-age objects ever found in Britain or Ireland.
Buried around AD900, the Galloway Hoard brings together a stunning variety of materials and treasures from Ireland, the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms and as far away as Asia. The Hoard transports us back to a critical moment in history: the formation of the political entities we now know as Scotland, England and Ireland, in a time of viking raids.
The Galloway Hoard was acquired with the support of the National Heritage Memorial Fund, the Art Fund, the Scottish Government and hundreds of generous individual supporters.
