Our finds identification sessions have been temporarily postponed due to Coronavirus. As the lockdown eases, we hope to re-introduce these as soon as we can. Please follow us on Facebook for the latest updates.

Finds identification days

If you have come across an interesting archaeological object while out walking or using a metal detector, bring your find to our Finds identification sessions, every second Saturday of the month, and find out more about it.

Simon Maslin find officer portrait
Perhaps that piece of metal could provide a clue to Guildford's past! Bring it along to Guildford House Gallery (opposite Sainsbury's in the High Street) and our Surrey Finds Liaison Officer, Simon Maslin (pictured) will take a look.


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.
