Fascinating Finds Day at Fairlynch

Have you ever found a curious coin while out walking?  Or a puzzling piece of pottery?  Or even an  ancient axe-head?

Anyone who has made such a fascinating find is invited to bring the item to Fairlynch Museum on Thursday 23 May 2013 between 11.00 am and 5.00 pm.

Archaeologist Danielle Wootton, who works for the Portable Antiquities Scheme, will be on hand to identify objects that people may have found while out digging in the garden or rambling in the countryside.  Metal detectorists are welcome, says Danielle.

“Finds Days like this are a wonderful opportunity for objects to be identified and recorded by experts. We would like to see anything that has been made or shaped by humans in the past such as flint, bone, pottery and metal objects or coins - but not things like rocks or fossils, dolls or antique furniture.  Even if you haven’t found anything, drop in to find out more about Archaeology and the Portable Antiquities Scheme. Everyone is welcome.”
