NMS Early Silver


National Museum of Scotland – Early Silver

Tigershark created four films and two touchscreen explorers for the 2018 exhibition at the National Museum of Scotland. Supported by Glenmorangie, it will show for the first time how silver, not gold, became the most important precious metal in Scotland over the course of the first millennium AD.

New research and recent archaeological discoveries will chart the first thousand years of silver in Scotland. The exhibition will showcase Scotland’s earliest silver, arriving with the Roman army, and show the lasting impact this new material had on early Medieval Scotland.

This research is part of a unique multi award-winning cultural partnership with The Glenmorangie Company which is now in its ninth year.
