Have you ever found archaeological objects whilst digging in the garden, taking the dog for a walk or metal detecting? Would you like to find out more about them?


Help is on hand; bring them in to The Higgins Bedford to show and discuss them with Matt Fittock our Finds Liaison Officer for the Portable Antiquities Scheme. There is no need to book, just drop in.


The Portable Antiquities Scheme is a nationwide service run by the British Museum. To find out more about the service look on the website:
