The Peebles Hoard A unique late Bronze Age horse harness hoard from Peebles
In June of this year, a metal detectorist near Peebles uncovered one of the most significant Late Bronze Age hoards ever found in Scotland. Comprising fittings from an elaborate horse harness and a sword, this find will provide a rare insight into Bronze Age society and connections with the wider world.
Within days of the discovery, the Treasure Trove Unit were on site to excavate the in-situ hoard. In this presentation Emily Freeman, manager of Treasure Trove in Scotland, will discuss the Treasure Trove process and series of events from initial discovery to the eventual block lift.
