Treasure hunter who discovered Galloway Hoard will get £2million

Scot Derek McLennan, 49, stumbled across an unprecedented 10th century haul of rare Viking coins, jewellery and pottery in 2014. Now he has been handed his riches after Scotland national museums were told they must give him £1.98million for the find.

The Galloway Hoard was described by experts as “one of the most important finds ever discovered in Scotland”. The 100-item haul included an early Christian cross, silver brooches and bracelets and gold rings.
