Portable Antiquities Website

The Portable Antiquities Scheme website provides information about Scheme, eg contact details for the finds liaison officers and reports on recent finds. The main purpose of the site however is to allow researchers access to data gathered under the Scheme. The site has recently been updated to include records of around 10,000 finds, about 600 of which are accompanied by images. The search screen has also been revised to make it far more user-friendly. If you do get a chance, please have a look at the site (www.finds.org.uk) and in particular, the on-line database, and send me any comments.
