Much of this jewellery has been lost, some melted down, but some pieces have survived. Discovered in ‘hoards’ which had been buried, possibly in a bid to protect them from Vikings or other raiders. A hoard of silver found at Norrie’s Law, Fife in 1819 included two leaf-shaped metal plaques, engraved and enamelled with Pictish symbols, as well as decorated pins and other items. A fine silver chain, a serpent-like bracelet and more pins were discovered at Gaulcross, Banffshire in 1840
