Dorset County Council's Historic Environment team will be at the museum on Tuesday 28 November

Members of Dorset County Council's Historic Environment team will be at the museum on Tuesday 28 November, 10.30 to 1.00.

Visitors can discuss their research and submit an Historic Environment Record enquiry in person, or show their finds to the Finds Liaison Officer (Portable Antiquities Scheme). It will give local volunteers, researchers and metal detectorists an opportunity to meet face-to-face, and to drop off and collect finds for identification.

Visitors attending the morning session with the Finds Liaison Officer will gain free entry to the museum.

For further information please contact the museum.
