More than 170 years ago, Scottish workers cleaning a field of stone with dynamite discovered three beautiful silver artefacts: a spiral bracelet, a chain, and a pin. However, instead of searching the area for new finds, they went back to work as instructed. For years the field was forgotten.

Recently, however, archaeologists re-searched the field and discovered 100 silver items, including: coins, pieces of brooches and bracelets. The items date back to the late Roman period – 4th and 5th century CE. The finds clearly confirm that they belonged to the upper classes of society.
