Brighton & Hove Archaeological Society will be on hand to talk about local archaeology, and there will be lots of finds to handle.

We will also be joined by Edwin Wood, the Finds Liaision Officer for Sussex. Edwin will bring along a range of artefacts from Neolithic stone axe heads to Roman coins and medieval brooches. If you have found an object and you would like it identified and recorded please bring it along. He will also be able to give advice on metal detecting, searching for artefacts, archaeology and heritage crime.

The day will be a great opportunity to find out more about local archaeological activity, and a chance to get an expert opintion on your own finds. Whether you’re just casually curious, or have a mysterious find of your own, please join us in Brighton Museum on 31 March.

Andy Maxted, Curator
