Ashmolean Museum inventory no. AN1909.519-551. Silver. Largest Viking-Age silver hoard discovered to date in North-West Europe, consisting of over 8,500 individual silver items, buried in a lead lined chest. They include silver ingots, rings, brooches, amulets and coins of various provenances, including some Arabic and Continental coins. The coins can be used to date the hoard fairly accurately, to c.905. It may have been deposited by Vikings expelled from Dublin in 902. Discovered in 1804 on the banks of the River Ribble, Cuerdale, Lancashire.
