In 1796 a surgeon named Jonathan Troup donated a portion of a massive silver chain to the King’s College Museum in Aberdeen. It was said to have been found “at Nigg”.
The chain, which may actually have been a mixture of silver and bronze, consisted of eleven interlinked rings, alternating as pairs and single links.
Some time after 1914 the King’s College Museum collection was transferred to the Marischal College Museum.
The RCAHMS only give the vague coordinates NJ 9 0 for its original location and state that it was found in the parish of Nigg, so for now I have placed this possible Pictish chain near the geographical centre of the parish.
Incidentally there is a second parish of Nigg, in Ross and Cromarty, which is home to a Pictish cross slab.
