The Goldsborough Hoard was discovered in 1859 during construction outside the north wall of Goldsborough Church.
The hoard contains several fragments of Viking brooches and arm-rings, and with thirty-nine coins. There are three Anglo-Saxon coins – the rest of the coins are Islamic dirhams from the Middle East.
