The Gleam of Silver: Vikings, Coins and Hoards

Lunchtime Talk

Hoards are some of the clearest and most spectacular remnants of the Viking presence in Britain. A group of seven hoards will be displayed in the exhibition ‘Viking: Rediscover the Legend’, one of the largest collections of Viking silver ever displayed. This talk will interpret the silver and coinage that they contain, using them to argue that the Vikings transformed Britain.
