Chance discoveries of artefacts by members of the public have the potential to make a significant contribution to our understanding of Scotland's past. The Treasure Trove system ensures that finds of cultural significance are protected for the benefit of the nation and preserved in museums across the country.
If you have found an object whilst farming, gardening, or through hobbies such as metal detecting, bring it along to the Museum of the Isles where the Treasure Trove Officer will be delighted to discuss your finds and answer any questions you may have about the Treasure Trove system.more details »
