The Synton Hoard

The story of how the 2nd century 228 silver denarii hoard found at Synton Hill near Ashkirk, off the A7 en route to Hawick, came to be purchased for £10,000 under Treasure Trove in a partnership between the Trust and Scottish Borders Council, for display by each partner for half the year. The hoard is prominently displayed in the Museum for the 2015 season along with the Kippielaw hoard – a total hoard of 300 silver denarii of the 2nd and 3rd centuries
