Britain's biggest haul of Viking treasures with hundreds of stunning artefacts of 'global significance' will be displayed in Scotland after £2 million is raised in 6 months.

1,100-year-old hoard includes Viking Age gold, silver jewellery and ingots, and a range of jewelled items
National Museums Scotland was given six months to raise £2m for the stash or risk losing it to private buyers
Donations from the National heritage funds, the Scottish Government and the public helped meet the target
The objects were found in a pot unearthed by a metal detectorist in Dumfries and Galloway in 2014.............

Strange it does not mention if the farmer is going to get anything from the reward.

I think in Scotland the reward goes to the finder so I'm hoping he splits it with the landowner.
