Frequently Asked Questions

What happens if you find treasure?

It’s very rare to find artefacts of any monetary value on archaeological sites but in the event that any artefacts are encountered that would constitute ‘treasure’ (as defined by The Treasure Act, 1996) Ambrey Archaeology would be obliged to report the find to the local Coroner and relevant Finds Liaison Officer.

The treasure would have to be excavated on the same day and removed to a secure site, unless this is impractical, in which case security would be required on site.
