The Portable Antiquities Scheme is a DCMS funded project to encourage the voluntary recording of archaeological objects found by members of the public in England and Wales. 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.
Lectures usually start at 7:30pm and are held in the Wilberforece Building, Hull University, Cottingham Road, Hull. There is an entrance fee for non-members of £1.
