Iron Age treasure goes on display


A hoard of Iron Age treasure which was unearthed by a novice metal-detecting enthusiast is being displayed at the National Museum of Scotland.

The four gold neck ornaments, known as torcs, date back to the 1st and 3rd century BC and were found by David Booth just six inches beneath the surface of a Stirlingshire field in September 2009. The treasure trove was allocated to the national collection in Chambers Street, Edinburgh - netting Mr Booth £462,000.
