Ciorstaidh Hayward Trevarthen, Finds Liaison Officer Dorset

On Saturday 15th August, Ciorstaidh Hayward Trevarthen, expert Finds Liaison Officer for Dorset will be in the Museum’s Victorian Hall from 10.30am to 12.30pm to help identify archaeological objects found by members of the public.

If you have any finds from metal detecting, field walking or casual finds from gardening etc. and would like to know more about them, Ciorstaidh will be happy to take a look at them. This includes metal objects such as coins, buckles, brooches and tools, as well as pottery, tile and worked stone.

Finds are identified and, depending on their date and type, may be recorded in more detail onto a national database as part of the Portable Antiquities Scheme. Ciorstaidh is happy to help identify any finds the public brings in, but generally those dating to before 1700 will be recorded.

This event is FREE of charge, but a small donation in support of Dorset County Museum is encouraged.
