Viking Silver Lecture John Sheehan

Wednesday 13th July 2016 - Wednesday 13th July 2016

John Sheehan of the Archaeology Department in University College Cork will give a lecture on Wednesday July 13th entitled ‘Viking Silver in the Hunt Collection’. Mr Sheehan will be focusing on the Viking-age silver in the collection, primarily discussing a silver neck-ring which dates from the 10th – 11th Century, and a silver brooch, that dates from the 9th – 10th Century. A Viking silver arm-ring that John Hunt had in the collection (the present whereabouts of which is unknown) will also be discussed.

This lecture will compliment the silver survey project funded by the Heritage Council.
