Join Dr Adrián Maldonado as he summarise the main findings from this seminar series, address some recurring audience questions, and discuss the gaps in our knowledge which still remain about the Galloway Hoard.
Buried at the beginning of the 10th century in Dumfries and Galloway, the Hoard lay undisturbed for a thousand years before being discovered by a metal detectorist and excavated by an archaeologist in September 2014. This incredible find brings together the richest collection of rare and unique Viking-age objects ever found in Britain or Ireland.
Dr Adrián Maldonado is the Galloway Hoard Researcher at the National Museums of Scotland. His interests include early medieval Scotland, the Viking Age, early Christianity, the archaeology of death and burial and medievalism in pop culture. He is also the author of Crucible of Nations (2021).
