Grant to support the study of PAS finds from Cheshire

Published: 5 years ago Author:

An exciting opportunity has been offered by Chester Archaeological Society to encourage the study and publication of objects (or groups/types of object) reported to the Portable Antiquities Scheme from Cheshire and adjoining areas, to ensure that their potential contribution to the understanding of the archaeology and history of the county is realised. It is therefore offering a grant of GBP 700 every two years to help suitable persons to undertake such research. It is a condition of the grant that the results of the research shall be offered for first publication as an article in the Journal of the Chester Archaeological Society.

Currently 5,591 objects have been recorded on the database from Cheshire and this grant will allow these finds to be researched in more detail adding to our knowledge of Cheshire's past.
