FEATURED WEB SITE: PORTABLE ANTIQUITIES SCHEME DATABASE

This week's Featured Web Page is the Portable Antiquities Scheme database, suggested by Kavan Ratnatunga. Thanks! He writes:

Thanks for posting information about my hoard. Looking for images of other coins with that counter mark I stumbled upon the Portable Antiquities Scheme database.

There are over 200,000 entries for coins with images. I even found one I was looking for.

Portable Antiquities Scheme logo

The Portable Antiquities Scheme is a voluntary scheme to record archaeological objects found by members of the public in England and Wales. Every year many thousands of objects are discovered, many of these by metal-detector users, but also by people whilst out walking, gardening or going about their daily work. Such discoveries offer an important source for understanding our past.

This website provides background information on the Portable Antiquities Scheme, news articles, events listings and access to our database of objects and images.
