A selection of stunning Viking arm rings from the Silverdale Hoard. They date from around 900 AD and show beautiful, delicate and decorative designs. At the front of the photograph five different rings - with two complete arm rings and a chunky finger ring looped together by two other rings. LANMS.2013.32.8 a-d This spectacular collection of Viking silver was discovered in mid September 2011. It is one of the largest collection of Viking silver found to date and was unearthed by a keen metal detectorist near to the village of Silverdale in North Lancashire. The hoard is believed to have been deposited at approximately the same time as the Cuerdale Hoard, circa 905 AD. The Silverdale Hoard was purchased by Lancashire County Council and displayed at Lancaster City Museum, the Museum of Lancashire and the British Museum. Since then it has undergone careful conservation. These images were taken at Lancaster and Preston in 2013-14 before the conservation work took place.
