Finds – Best Practice

PASIf you’ve found something that you think may be an archaeological object, or Treasure, please read the advice from the Portable Antiquities Scheme below:

TAS Position on Metal Detecting and Fieldwork

The Teesside Archaeological Society does not support illicit metal detector activities, unauthorised invasive fieldwork or collecting that removes or harms our shared heritage assets. The Society encourages responsible recording in all research-based ventures, field activities and the reporting of chance finds to the local Historic Environment Record (HER) officer and/or the regional Portable Antiquities Scheme (PAS) finds officer. Field projects can also be recorded through the OASIS portal – free and open to anybody.
