Fabulous finds at Warrington Museum

WARRINGTON Museum is marking National Archaeology Week by inviting all budding Indiana Jones to have their discoveries identified by a top professional.

Find out if you are sitting on a treasure on Wednesday 18th July, between 1pm and 4:30pm with Frances McIntosh, the finds liaison officer for the Portable Antiquities Scheme in the north west.

She will be on hand to offer free one-to-one consultations on any items you may have discovered whilst metal detecting, out walking, or even digging in the garden.

There will also be a range of exciting objects on display, which have been found by amateur metal detectorists in the region.

Janice Hayes, Museum Manager, says, “What many don’t know is that Warrington is a veritable hotbed of archaeological items, each having their own individual history. Find out about your items by popping along for a consultation.
