Portable Antiquities Scheme Events

The Scheme runs a wide variety of events throughout England and Wales annually. These events include:

  • Finds identification days in museums, libraries, archives and archaeology centres
  • Lecture free of charge to clubs, societies and students
  • Provide their services at metal detecting rallies
  • Organise and attend conferences on related topics to the work of the Scheme
  • Run, help, attend and otherwise provide assistance to their local Young Archaeologist's Club

Our staff are on hand to provide finders of archaeological objects with expert advice on identification, cleaning, conservation and recording. We ideally would like to record all archaeological objects offered to us for recording on our national database. 

You can subscribe to a listing of our events via RSS or ATOM feeds and please feel free to comment on past events, so that we can get qualitative feedback on what we are doing.
