Save the Galloway Hoard

Help us save the Galloway Hoard for the nation!

In 2014, a metal detectorist in Dumfries and Galloway made a remarkable discovery. Buried in the ground, hidden for more than a thousand years, was a wealth of silver and gold riches, jewellery and treasure.

It’s known today as the Galloway Hoard, and nothing like it has ever been found in Britain before.

Now we need to save the Hoard for the nation, and to do that we need your help.

To keep the Hoard together and preserve it for future generations, we need to raise £1.98 million – and time is running out.

Please help save the Galloway Hoard for the nation with a gift today. Visit www.nms.ac.uk/hoard to make a donation now, and sign up here to help spread the word.

"As senior curator here, I never imagined that something so breath-taking and historically significant was waiting to be found. It’s vital that we don’t now lose it. You can help bring the Hoard’s story to life with a gift today."

– Dr Martin Goldberg, Senior Curator, Early Medieval and Viking Collections
