A HOARD of Viking silver arm bands found in Huxley, Cheshire in 2004 is to be displayed at the Salt Museum.
The find, made by metal detectorist Steve Reynolds, consists of silver bracelets and an ingot and fragments of sheet lead.
They are believed to have been produced by Norse settlers in Dublin in the late 9th and early 10th centuries.
The hoard could have been buried for safekeeping by Viking refugees who settled in Cheshire and Wirral after being expelled from Dublin by the Irish in 902 AD. Alternatively, it may have belonged to Vikings who were raiding this part of Cheshire, sailing up the then navigable River Gowy from the Mersey estuary.
