The Spillings Hoard (Swedish: Spillingsskatten) is the world's largest Viking silver treasure, found on Friday 16 July 1999 in a field at the Spilling farm northwest of Slite, on northern Gotland, Sweden. The silver hoard consisted of two parts with a total weight of 67 kg (148 lb) before conservation and consisted of, among other things, 14,295 coins most of which were Islamic from other countries. A third deposition containing over 20 kg (44 lb) of bronze scrap-metal was also found. The three caches had been hidden under the floorboards of a Viking outhouse sometime during the 9th century.

  • Die eng benachbarten Horte von Spillings (Hort = schwed. Fornfynd oder Skatt) wurden im Sommer 1999 auf einem Acker in der Gemarkung Spillings, in der Nähe des Ortes Slite im Kirchspiel Othem im Norden der schwedischen Insel Gotland entdeckt. Der Fund liegt im Gebiet des Bogeviken, eines heute teilweise verlandeten, etwa drei Kilometer weiten Naturhafens der Wikingerzeit. Zwei der Horte enthielten Silber, der dritte Bronzegegenstände. Zusammen stellen sie den reichsten der beinahe 800 in historischer Zeit auf Gotland gemachten Hortfunde aus der Wikingerzeit dar. Die Horte lagen auf einer Linie hintereinander. Der Abstand zwischen Hort 1 und Hort 2 betrug drei Meter, der zwischen Hort 2 und Hort 3 anderthalb Meter. Alle Horte befanden sich ursprünglich in einem größeren Gebäude, dessen Reste bei weiteren Untersuchungen entdeckt wurden. (de)
