"This exceptional silver treasure consists of over 8,500 objects buried in a lead-lined chest. It was found by workmen in the bank of the River Ribble in 1840. They immediately began to fill their pockets with the silver coins. On the arrival of the bailiff, they were ordered to empty their pockets, but he did allow them to keep one piece each."

In 1996 someone found a Viking hoard at Westerklief on the former island of Wieringen, The Netherlands. The treasure contained Carolingian and Arab coins, bracelets and silver ingots, all buried in an earthenware pot. The coins date the treasure at around 850. Wieringen at that time was a part of Frisia.
