The exhibition, programmed by the University of Nottingham Museum, features some of the most well-known Viking hoards ever discovered in this country, including the Vale of York Viking Hoard, Cuerdale Hoard, Bedale Hoard and the recently discovered Watlington Hoard on loan from the Ashmolean Museum.
