The Portable Antiquities Scheme exists to encourage the voluntary recording of archaeological objects found by members of the public in England and Wales.

The Finds Liaison Officer role records archaeological finds discovered by members of the public. The post is funded by the DCMS as part of the Portable Antiquities Scheme and is based at Verulamium Museum but works across Hertfordshire & Bedfordshire.


Someone may not always be available on site at Verulamium Museum, but finds can be left for future identification and recording. Please do not bring finds to the Town Hall site.


If you have something you think is treasure - please do report this to us. Objects that count as treasure (broadly) are: Objects comprised mostly of silver or gold and more than 300 years old; 2 or more coins of silver or gold and more than 300 years old (a single coin is not treasure); 10 or more coins of bronze and more than 300 years old; more than 1 item of pre-historic metalwork from the same find spot.
