The study of history often involves the evidence from coin finds; not just what is
found but where can have a major impact on the interpretation of our past.
The Portable Antiquities Scheme is the body charged with the voluntary recording
of finds which may be of historic interest. Further down is their News Feed, highlighting
major new items of interest.
