Portable Antiquities: Archaeology, Collecting and Metal Detecting
The CBA is teaming up with Newcastle University's International Centre for Cultural and Heritage Studies to organise and host a major conference titled Portable Antiquities: Archaeology, Collecting, Metal Detecting. This will take place in Newcastle upon Tyne on Saturday 13th March 2010.

Speakers will address the current issues facing those involved and interested in portable antiquities, whether from an archaeological, collecting or metal detecting background. Papers will address recent research, new initiatives and ultimately discuss what the future holds for portable antiquity management and protection in the UK and further afield.

Because of this, plenty of time has been scheduled to allow for debate. Confirmed speakers include representatives from the Portable Antiquities Scheme, the Scottish Treasure Trove Unit and the National Council for Metal Detecting, as well as presentations from analysts at the cutting edge of research into this fascinating area.

Further details will be announced shortly, via the CBA website and the ICCHS websites.

To be kept up to date or to express interest in attending this conference, contact Suzie Thomas directly in the first instance at
