The Bedale Hoard is a late ninth or early tenth-century hoard that was found in 2012. It includes necklaces, arm rings, hacksilver, ingots, and fittings from a sword hilt. The hilt included gold bands, gold rivets and a pommel inlaid with gold foil. Dr Sue Brunning of the British Museum will discuss the gold-trimmed sword hilt, and explain what ownership of such an item might have meant in Viking Age England.
