Portable Antiquities Scheme

The Portable Antiquities Scheme is a voluntary scheme to record archaeological objects found by members of the public in England and Wales. Every year many thousands of objects are discovered, many of these by metal-detector users, but also by people whilst out walking, gardening or going about their daily work. Such discoveries offer an important source for understanding our past.

Mark Lodwick is the Finds Liaison Officer for Wales, and attends our monthly meetings to record and ID finds made by the club.  If you have anything that you think needs recording and cannot get to the meeting, Mark can be contacted as follows :
