Meet the Detectorists

20 July @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Detectorists
As part of the Festival of Archaeology, come to this drop-in event and learn how the reporting of found archaeological objects by members of the public can rewrite our knowledge of the human story. Meet our Finds Liaison Officer (FLO) and local detectorists for a close look at interesting artefacts that have been discovered in our area, and bring along any objects that you would like identified. Learn more about the huge range of ancient possessions, tools, coins and jewellery that can be viewed on the British Museum’s Portable Antiquities Scheme database, and visit the Museum’s special exhibition Treasure Through Time.
Saturday 20th July | 10:15am – 15:15pm | West Berkshire Museum Cloth Hall | Free, drop-in
