Archaeological Finds Surgery


Date: First Thursday of every other month beg Jan 5th 2023

Drop-in event.

Have you found any archaeological objects? If so come and help build a bigger picture of our history by having them identified and recorded with the Portable Antiquities Scheme by your local Finds Liaison Officer. Edward Caswell is the Finds Liaison Officer for Oxfordshire and has worked with the Portable Antiquities Scheme (PAS) in Durham, Somerset and Devon before taking on the role here. His role is to identify and record artefacts found by members of the public (whether it be through metal detecting, gardening, walking the dog or something else!) and record those of archaeological interest on the PAS website. This database preserves information about these objects for future archaeologists and anyone wanting to know a little bit more about their area’s past. If you have found an object that you think might be of interest you can bring it to Edward at one of his finds surgeries held at Banbury Museum & Gallery. For more information on the Portable Antiquities Scheme. 10.30am-3.30pm (Please note a change of date for May’s Session)  
Booking is not essential.
