Detectorists' finds go on public display

Published: 5 years ago Author:

Artefacts found by metal detector users have gone on display at The Oxfordshire Museum in Woodstock for the first time. The Portable Antiquities Scheme working with the Oxford Blues Metal Detecting Club and Oxfordshire County Museum Services have created a display showing some of the most important and exciting finds made by members of the club. A silver Roman coin hoard, a rare medieval dog-lead harness and a gilded Saxon brooch are just a few of the objects on display until the end of August. This is the first time that objects discovered and owned by detector users have gone on display in the museum, and it is hoped this will become a regular feature.
