Portable Antiquities Scheme at the British Museum

The Portable Antiquities Scheme has just released its Treasure Annual Report at a special event in the British Museum. The scheme coordinates a network of Finds Liaison Officers who take reports from people who find ancient artifacts on their land or while out walking or metal detecting and, this year, they have 1,257 archaeological finds to report, including a  golden torc  from the Iron Age, a single hoard of over 3,600 Roman coins and an Anglo Saxon roundel depicting the Hand of God.

There is more about the event on the 24 Hour Museum site, and full details of the report from the Portable Antiquities Scheme itself.
