Identification of Finds

Whether you are a seasoned metal detectorist, or you’ve made a chance find in your garden, we may be able to help identify your archaeological discoveries.

Upcoming Finds Days

We work with the West Midlands Finds Liaison Officer to run regular finds days throughout the year. We recommend contacting the West Midlands & Staffordshire Finds Liaison Officer and booking a time slot to avoid disappointment. Contact details can be found at the bottom of this page.

Sessions typically run from 10am – 3pm.
