Recording Leicestershire Finds in Lockdown

Hello Finders,

My name is Megan Gard and I am the new Finds Liaison Officer for Leicestershire and Rutland. Having only taken up the post a few weeks before lockdown began, I have unfortunately not been able to meet with the majority of my clubs or finders, but I am keen to do so once it is safe and restrictions are lifted.

Although I have not had the opportunity to meet with most of you and see your lovely finds, I am still eager to record these during lockdown. I am currently working from home, so if you would like to record some of your finds with me, I am able to do so by email. If I could receive an image of each side of the object, its length, width, thickness all in mm, weight in grams and a findspot or grid reference; I should be able to create a full record.

Don’t hesitate to drop me an email with the above details to mgard@rutland.gov.uk

I hope everyone stays safe and well. I look forward to meeting you all soon!

All the best,

Megan
