Finds Days

We hold Finds Days at a selection of different museums throughout Staffordshire and the West Midlands.

At these Finds days, we generally work on an appointment basis. At present, due to Covid-19, we are asking people to submit finds for recording, ready bagged up complete with grid references. We are not allowed to sort through finds to sort out recordable finds. Finds will have to be quarantined for 72 hours before a receipt will be issued.

We are interested in recording ALL archaeological finds older than 300 years. More recent finds are at our discretion. If in doubt, please email Victoria or Teresa and we will let you know.
