Item Reference: BKS1136
Graham-Campbell, J. The Cuerdale Hoard and Related Viking-Age Silver and Gold from Britain and Ireland in the British Museum. London, 2011. Second Printing with Amendments, 2013. 387, colour and b/w illustrations throughout. This catalogue focuses on the entire non-numismatic contents of the Cuerdale Hoard (discovered in 1840), together with all the other hoards and single-finds of gold and silver artefacts (ornaments and ingots) of Viking character in the British Museum, found in Britain and Ireland, up to the end of the year 2000, with each piece individually catalogued and illustrated. There is also a full chapter discussing the coins from Cuerdale, together with summary descriptions. This is the first comprehensive account of the hoard, with extensive discussion of the objects themselves in the context of comparable material in the British Museum and other collections. This publication is of interest not only to scholars but also anyone fascinated by the Viking Age. Now out of print.
