The field where a Roman hoard was originally discovered during the 19th century has revealed a far vaster collection of artefacts - including evidence of the elite

This huge hoard of hack silver is still revealing details of life in Roman Scotland - almost 200 years after it was first found in Aberdeenshire

The field where a Roman hoard was originally discovered during the 19th century has revealed a far vaster collection of artefacts - including evidence of the elite

Little could be guessed of the stone circles which once stood at Gaulcross, a heavily farmed arable field in rural Aberdeenshire where two history teams united three years ago.

Two days into their work, metal detectorist Alistair McPherson – a colluder in the University of Aberdeen’s Northern Picts Projects and National Museums Scotland research – unearthed three late examples of siliquae, the thin, gnarled silver coins minted by the Romans. He also found bits of folded hack silver, a silver strap-end and part of a silver bracelet.
