This is the first comprehensive look at the use of gold in Scotland from prehistoric times to the present day. It guides the reader through the natural history of gold to how we have used gold in the past and use it now in the present, as well as looking at the history of gold use in Scotland from the earliest recorded discovery of gold in Scotland in 1245 and the first use of gold coinage in Scotland to pay a king s ransom in about 1357, to the Darien disaster of the late 1600s and beyond, this book contains many remarkable snippets
In 2014, the Hunterian held an exhibition of gold in Scotland. Amongst the treasures on display were the King's Gold Cup from the Leith races of 1751, Queen Victoria's gold collar of the Order of the Thistle, cloth of gold from the tomb of Robert the Bruce, Bronze and Iron Age gold torcs (especially the hoard from Law Farm, Morayshire), a multitude of Scottish gold coins made using Scottish gold, modern creations by Scottish goldsmith Graham Stewart, and ten large nuggets found from Scottish rivers.
Written by exhibition curator Neil DL Clark this fascinating book is an indispensable insight into the social, artistic and geological history of gold in Scotland.
