In 1840 a vast hoard of Viking silver was found at Cuerdale near Preston. It was buried more than 1,100 years ago! We’re celebrating this remarkable story for Lancashire Life’s 70th anniversary project, A History of Lancashire in 70 Objects.
The Cuerdale Hoard was buried when the Ribble valley was the main route between Viking York and the Irish Sea. The 7,5000 coins and 1,000 bits of silver jewellery were discovered by workmen in 1840. This exciting find was chosen as a popular entry to the A History of Lancashire in 70 objects. You can share pictures of you with the objects at @70_objects#Lancashire70
