Penrith and Eden Museum Finds Days

Next Finds Day Thursday 24 July 2014 11am to 4pm

  • Have you found any weird and wonderful artefacts recently?
  • Do you have any interesting items which you would like to find out more about?

What is a find?

A find could be something you have found in your garden, on the beach whilst metal detecting or out walking in the fields. It doesn't matter how strange, weird or wonderful your find is, as long as you can carry it you can bring it along.

Who will identify finds?

The Portable Antiquities Officer, Dot Broughton, will be visiting the museum to examine and identify your objects. The finds officer records and identifies all archaeological finds that pre date the 1800s such as coins, small stone objects, pottery, metal and glass. Dot will also have a variety of artefacts for you to handle and explore and you can take part in our family activities. Entry to the museum in free.

For more information on finds and the Treasures Act see Portable Antiquities Scheme website.
