Hidden Treasures: The Mysteries of Metal Detecting Dr. Alison Brookes Wednesday 23rd April 2014, 2.30-4pm 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. Join Dr. Alison Brookes to discuss the work of The Portable Antiquities Scheme and the Treasure Act. In the last five years the Corinium Museum has made a number of important acquisitions to its Prehistoric, Roman, Anglo-Saxon and Medieval collections from objects discovered by metal detectorists.
