Finds of interest.
Quote this message in a reply
This is what happens to our finds if they are over 300 years old or of special interest. We give them to our FLO [finds liason officer] who records them and puts them on a national data base run by the Portable Antiquities Scheme. What you see on the screen we also get on paper when they return our finds.

We get them back when we see the FLO the next time we hand something in. The only time that they keep a find is if it's declared as treasure trove by the coroner. Then it goes to the British Museum for validation and valuation. If no museums want it then it's returned to the finder. If a museum does want it then they pay the valuation which is shared between the finder and the landowner.

Man Stevie, that reads like an Archaeologists' wet dream. Glad to hear that at least you can get it back. I was thinking Russia in the fifties. But the Crown gets the hordes. Everybody owes China money I guess.
