A large and varied 10th century silver hoard of typical Scandinavian character with international components has been found at Harrogate in Yorkshire. Amateur metal detectorists made the find and immediately notified the authorities.

Thanks to Tim at Walking the Berkshires and Jeff Lanam for the tip-off.
