A hoard of Viking treasure discovered in North Wales last year is set to go on display at the National Museum of Wales.

Walter Hanks of Llanllyfni, near Caernarfon, found the historic artifacts which includes ancient ingots and fragments of coins dating back almost a thousand years.

The discovery, which was made in nearby Llandwrog, is believed to date back to 1025, and also includes 14 silver pennies which were produced in Ireland under the Hiberno-Scandinavian ruler Sihtric Anlafsson (989-1036).

Some of the coins date back even further to around 995AD.
