Portable Antiquities Scheme's Finds Database
The database is now a living resource, constantly updated by our staff with several hundred new objects each day. The objects recorded by the Scheme, are known as "porta ble antiquitie s" and are found by members of the public. These objects range from the Palaeolith ic to around the 18th Century, and include items recorded in the Annual Treasure Report published by the UK's Department of Culture, Media and Sport.
The Portable Antiquitie s Scheme is a voluntary scheme to record archaeolog ical objects found by members of the public in England and Wales.
