Tea-time talk: Fabulous finds

Join us for a short tea-time talk and explore some of the fantastic finds recently recorded with the Portable Antiquities Scheme.

Every year thousands of archaeological objects are discovered by members of the public. Many of these objects are brought into the museum to be recorded with the Portable Antiquities Scheme (PAS). These finds are made available through the PAS database and help advance knowledge of the history and archaeology of England and Wales.

Find out about some of these amazing artefacts with the Finds Liaison Officers for Gloucestershire & Avon.

This tea-time talk is part of the Festival of Archaeology, the UK’s biggest celebration of archaeology.

Speaker: Kurt Adams is the Gloucestershire and Avon Finds Liaison Officer for the Portable Antiquities Scheme. He has identified and recorded thousands of important archaeological items. Some of these finds have led to the discovery of important archaeological sites, which Kurt has investigated through fieldwork.
