Finds ID

With the Portable Antiquities Scheme

Found an archaeological object in your garden, out walking, or metal detecting? Come along to a finds day to learn more about your discovery and hand it in for recording with the Portable Antiquities Scheme. The Portable Antiquities Scheme records archaeological objects that are over 300 years old on to a publicly accessible database. By recording your finds, you’ll be adding to the archaeological record and overall knowledge of our shared history.

You can help us care for our collections and bring joy and inspiration to people in Manchester and beyond

As one of the UK’s largest university museums, we care for over 4.5 million objects, with an internationally-important collection spanning from Archaeology to Zoology, and nearly everything in between. We work with communities, support university students and schools in Manchester and beyond and we are a free, inclusive museum for all. But we need your help. Every object we care for, exhibition, school visit and community event comes at a cost, and you can help make the museum as ambitious and impactful as possible.
