SILVER finds from the Viking world used to be great rarity in Morecambe Bay and Cumbria but metal detectorists have had a rich vein of luck in uncovering finds in the past few years.

The Furness Hoard can be seen at Barrow's Dock Museum and the Silverdale Hoard has been on display at Lancaster's City Museum.

Now a third treasure find - the Beckermet Hoard - is to go on show at the Beacon Museum in Whitehaven. In 2014 enthusiasts Justin Bell and Daniel Boakes unearthed a Viking hoard of 20 silver artefacts from the 10 th century in Beckermet, near Egremont in West Cumbria.
