Donating to the archaeology collection

Circular gold shaped with a small gap at the top and hole in the centre.

We welcome single finds that contribute new information on the people living in the Northampton area from pre-history to the present day.

New archaeological fieldwork in the county

Our collection is currently closed to all new archaeological fieldwork. The Northamptonshire Archaeological Resources Centre, at the Chester House Estate, will be the repository for archives from all new fieldwork in the county.

Individual finds

We will collect single finds by individuals from the West Northamptonshire and where of regional importance across the county. This includes occasional finds resulting from individual metal detecting and field walking and those recorded as ‘treasure’ under the Treasure Act 1996 through the Portable Antiquities Scheme. This scheme encourages the reporting of archaeological finds by members of the public.
