Do you want to know more about that mysterious item you found the other day?
Archaeological objects found across Lincolnshire can be bought to a Finds Identification Evening at Skendleby Village Hall on Wednesday, June 7 at 7.30pm.
Finds Liaison Officer, Adam Daubney, from the Portable Antiquities Scheme, will be on hand to offer expert advice on all finds and to give an idea about age and relevance to our local heritage.
Adam has a keen eye for all things archaeological and has a real passion for Lincolnshire.
He said: “Our area is rich in archaeological finds, many of which have been found while people are out dog walking or digging the garden. Each find that we record helps to create a bigger and better picture about the history of the landscape we live in.”
“Archaeology is the study of past human activity; therefore we can’t identify fossils and antiques during our finds evenings. I am really interested to see things which have been unearthed from the ground, such as coins, metalwork, and pottery. If you have an archaeological object which you have questions about, then I would love to see you there,” he added.
The Portable Antiquities Scheme has over 64,000 finds logged form the Lincolnshire Area.
More information about the scheme can be found at www.finds.org.uk.
The Finds Evening is brought to you by Lincolnshire County Council and through the Spirit of Sutterby group, as part of community heritage project, Down Your Wold.
