What to do if you find an archaeological object
The Portable Antiquities Scheme is a voluntary scheme which records archaeological objects found by members of the public. Every year thousands of objects are found, mostly by metal detector users, but also by members of the public when gardening or walking.
Finds recorded with the Scheme help advance knowledge of the history and archaeology of England and Wales.
If you find an object, please get in touch with the Warwickshire Finds Liaison Officer.
