Archaeology Group: Conservation of the Galloway Hoard

The richest collection of rare and unique Viking-age objects ever found in Britain or Ireland

Join us for a lunchtime lecture on the conservation of the Galloway Hoard, Scotland’s earliest Viking-age hoard.

The hoard was found in 2014 and an exhibition is now on tour in Scotland after extensive research and conservation work. It was a true conservation challenge having a variety of material (glass, rock crystal and other minerals, minerally preserved organics) in addition to the precious metals. The lecture will be given by Martin Goldberg (curator) and Mary Davis (conservator).
