If so, why not bring your discovery to the new Level 2 Research Room at  Blackburn Museum and Art Gallery on Wednesday 26th September 2018. The museum’s Curator of History will be available to help answer object enquiries and Portable Antiquities Finds Officer, Stuart Noon, will be on hand to identify your archaeological finds and record those over 300 years old.

The Portable Antiquities Scheme (PAS) is a national programme co-ordinated by the British Museum. It assists with the identification and recording of archaeological finds discovered by members of the public. To find out more about the Portable Antiquities Scheme visit https://finds.org.uk/
