Galloway Viking Treasure Revealed After 1,000 Years!

Images are released of the contents of a pot of Viking treasure – more than 1,000 years after it was buried in a field in Galloway.

Items inside include six silver Anglo-Saxon disc brooches, a gold ingot and Byzantium silk.

The pictures give the public a chance to see the items for the first time as they are not currently on display.

It follows a painstaking project to remove and conserve the items which date from the 9th to 10th century AD.

The hoard was discovered by metal detectorist Derek McLennan in Dumfries and Galloway in 2014.
