This man's Hobby Led Him to a Discovery that Changes his Life

Derek McLennan's hobby actually paid off. He unearthed the largest collection of Viking Antiques that made him into a very, very wealthy man.


Derek McLennan's hobby made him one of the richest man in the UK after finding a rare set of Viking treasures. Derek is a metal detectorist -- he goes around snooping land for some hidden finds. Usually, it's nothing interesting. But one day, Derek stumbled upon a large collection of Viking Antiques in a Dumfries and Galloway field back in 2014.

He found silver bracelets, brooches, a gold ring, an enamelled Christian cross, and a golden pin in the shape of a bird. Unfortunately, McLennan couldn't keep it. He decided to hand it over to experts. The people at the Queen's and Lord Treasurer's Remembrancer (QLTR) decided that the loot should be exhibited at the National Museums Scotland, provider that they pay 1.98 million pounds to Derek. That's roughly 12 million pesos in our country.

The amount is considered to be an ex-gratia which includes the total market value of the said finds.

Unfortunately, the land owner of the fields cannot claim any share to the amount awarded to McLennan because in Scotland, awards are solely given to the finder-- unlike the rest of UK which decree an equal split between finder and land owner.\

NMS has been given 6 months to raise the amount. David Harrie from QLTR said that McLennan's find is one of the most precious and value-adding piece of Scottish history. In an interview he said:

“I am pleased to announce that I am minded to accept the recommendation of the Scottish Archaeological Finds Allocation Panel [Safap] that these wonderful items be allocated to National Museums Scotland, subject to it meeting the ex gratia award which would then be payable to the finder."
