The Portable Antiquities Scheme in Wales: Portable Antiquities Scheme (PAS Cymru)

The Portable Antiquities Scheme (PAS) encourages the reporting of archaeological items found by metal detectorists and other members of the public in England and Wales which are not covered by the Treasure Act 1996.

Thousands of objects are discovered by metal detectorists in Wales each year, including 20-30 items declared as Treasure.

PAS makes finds records accessible to the public via a searchable online database containing information on over a million objects.
