What do you do if you find Treasure or other archaeological objects? Join Heather Beeton, our Finds Liaison Officer, to discover what happens when ordinary people uncover extraordinary finds and how we preserve a record of these discoveries with the Portable Antiquities Scheme. This talk will also explore the fantastic finds unearthed in the local area with an opportunity to handle finds as old as 4,000 years.

Tickets are £7 per person and can be booked below.

As part of the Festival of Archaeology, there are two talks taking place on 19 July, so why not join us for both talks for the discounted price of £10.
