Silver was the most precious metal in Scotland for a thousand years. Scotland’s Early Silver tells us how it all began with Roman payoffs to the northern tribes and how these Iron Age sweeteners were in turn converted into wonderful treasures of Pictish art. Fraser Hunter, Curator of the Iron Age and Roman Collections at National Museums Scotland gives an entertaining introduction to this lavishly illustrated book.
