In Worcestershire, there have been almost 200 treasure reports to the Portable Antiquites Scheme since the implementation of the Treasure Act 1996. The largest of these is the Bredon Hoard comprising 3,874 Roman copper alloy coins, discovered in 2011.

The Portable Antiquities Scheme is run by the British Museum and Amgueddfa Cymru – Museum Wales to encourage the recording of archaeological objects found by members of the public in England and Wales.

Join Victoria Allnatt, Finds Liaison Officer for the scheme based in the West Midlands, as she discusses some of the treasure finds that have been discovered across the county, including some that have been permanently acquired for the museum collection.

£4.50; book via the link below.
