It’s ten years since the Silverdale Hoard, one of the largest Viking-age hoards ever found in England, was discovered in a field in Lancashire.
To celebrate its display at the JORVIK Viking Centre throughout 2022, the Richard Hall Symposium this year focuses on hoards: their concealment, their rediscovery, and their interpretation.
Confirmed speakers so far:
Allison Fox, Manx National Heritage
Martin Goldberg, National Museums Scotland
Lucy Moore, University of York
John Sheehan, University College Cork
Gareth Williams, British Museum
22nd May 9.00am-5.00pm
