Conservation for Metal Detectorists

3rd January 2020, 11:12am | By David | Event Date : 20200208

Join Wiltshire’s professional Conservators for a day packed with talks and practical advice and activities. Aimed at current and budding metal detectorists, you will be given advice and information from archaeologists and conservators about dealing with finds. The day includes contributions from the Wiltshire and Swindon Centre’s own Archaeological Service who will outline the details of responsible detecting and the work of the Portable Antiquities scheme. With our combination of activities and useful information, we aim for you to walk away knowing how to proceed upon discovering finds that may need conservation and recording, who to contact for help, and services we may be able to offer you.

£95, limited places – booking essential on 01249 705500 or archives@wiltshire.gov.uk

Please book by 31st January to avoid disappointment.
