PIECES OF THE PAST

Scottish Field - - IN THE KONW -

The Na­tional Mu­seum of Scot­land will be hold­ing a new ex­hi­bi­tion, Scot­land’s Early Sil­ver, start­ing this Oc­to­ber, where a dis­cov­ery of Ro­man sil­ver from Dair­sie in Fife will be on dis­play. The col­lec­tion of sil­ver, which dates back to the late 3rd cen­tury AD and is the ear­li­est ‘hack­sil­ver’ from any­where be­yond the fron­tiers of the Ro­man Em­pire, was un­earthed in 2014 by de­tec­torist David Hall at the young age of 14. www.nms.ac.uk
