Dear Portable Antiquities Scheme finder,

I am writing to let you know that I am going now starting my maternity leave. This letter is to let you know about cover arrangements.

My current contract as Finds Liaison Officer for South and West Yorkshire expires at the end of March 2017. Assuming PAS receives further funding from the British Museum and my contract is renewed, I intend to return to work in July 2017.

Until then, my work is being divided between different colleagues as follows:

Treasure finds - please send all enquiries about ongoing Treasure cases or declare new finds to Rebecca Griffiths, the Finds Liaison Officer for North and East Yorkshire. She can be contacted on 01904 687668 or Her postal address is: York Museums Trust, The Yorkshire Museum, Museum Gardens, York, YO1 7FR.

You can also contact the Treasure Team at the British Museum on, or by calling 0207 323 8611 or 0207 323 8243

Recording Non-Treasure finds with PAS, finds enquiries and museum Finds Afternoons - enquiries about these should be directed to Dr Kevin Leahy, who is one of the PAS National Finds Advisors. He can be reached on or 07792 682938. You can also write to him C/o The FLO at North Lincolnshire Museum, Oswald Road, Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire, DN15 7BD. Kevin will be recording finds for me and dealing with finds enquiries.

Kevin will be running regular finds surgeries in local museums. Please contact him to check that the arrangements haven't changed, but the dates scheduled are on the enclosed leaflet. Please take your finds along for identification and recording.

Please make sure you have labelled each one with the Ordnance Survey British National Grid Reference for the findspot, or take a map to show Kevin where they are from. If you have access to the internet, is very useful. You can use the aerial photograph map to work out which field the finds came from, then copy the grid reference onto the bag. Please also record the parish name, and the date you made the discovery.

Other queries about the Treasure process or the PAS in general - please contact the Treasure Team (as above) or PAS head office on 0207 323 8611. Their full contact details, along with those of neighbouring FLOs can also be found at

Metal Detecting Clubs Unfortunately, we do not have enough resources to continue to visit detecting clubs while I am on leave. Members of clubs who wish to record are encouraged to take their finds to Kevin at one of the museums. As long as finds are clearly labelled, one member can act as a courier for other members of their club.

Thank you in advance for your understanding and patience during the time I am on leave.

Best wishes,
