Uncover the Silverdale Hoard at JORVIK

One of the largest Viking hoards ever discovered in the UK has been loaned to JORVIK Viking Centre by Lancashire County Museum Service.

Discovered in a lead container in Lancashire, the Silverdale Hoard is comprised of over 200 pieces of silver rings, hacksilver and coins of Anglo-Saxon, Viking and Arabic origin.

The hoard provides a fascinating window into 900AD - a time of intense conflict between the Anglo Saxons and Danes in the north of England, and a time when the trading town of Jorvik was at its peak.
