The most important hoard of Iron Age gold yet unearthed in Scotland, an astonishing cache of Iron Age gold necklaces was unearthed in a field near Stirling in September by a would-be treasure-hunter trying out his first metal detector.

The hoard is of European significance, revealing the wealth and cosmopolitan connections of those living in the area between 300 and 100 BC.
