twice before about what is now being called the Galloway Hoard, a Viking treasure found by a metal detectorist back in 2014. Part of it was in this Carolingian pot. At first the pot couldn't be opened, so it was CAT scanned to find out what was in it, but then eventually the thing was opened; I've never been able to find out how.
in the news today because a Scottish court valued it at £1.98 Million (about $2.5 million) and allowed the National Museums of Scotland six months to raise the money. (Gold pin)
