Finds Day with the Portable Antiquities Scheme

Please note the August session has had to be cancelled. 

Did you know that thousands of archaeological objects are discovered every year by people going about their daily lives? Have you found a mystery object you'd like to identify? Drop in to see our amazing Finds Liaison Officers from Portable Antiquities Lancashire & Cheshire to find out more about your discoveries.

The British Museum's Portable Antiquities Scheme exists to record archaeological objects found by members of the public and any finds recorded, "help advance knowledge of the history and archaeology of England and Wales."

Don't worry if you can't make it this time. The Finds Liaison Officers plan to be back at the museum again on three more occasions during the coming year, so keep an eye out for confirmation of dates and times.

And finally, ….don't forget, "An object does not have to be Treasure to be treasured!"
