Perhaps that piece of metal could provide a clue to Guildford's past! Bring it along to Guildford Museum and our new Surrey Finds Liaison Officer, Simon Maslin (pictured) will take a look.


Simon will be based at the museum every second Saturday of the month from 11am to 1pm, to help identify your archaeological treasures.

Please bring along any items found locally. Simon will be looking at the importance of your find, its conversation and storage, and how it relates to the Treasure Act.
