Treasure at the Manor House Museum!

Published: Wednesday, 30th August 2017

Discover Kettering’s archaeological treasures!

Are you interested in the archaeological treasures unearthed by members of the public in our area?

Ellie Cox, our local Finds Liaison Officer, will be visiting the Manor House Museum on Saturday 16th September for a session on Kettering’s Treasure!

This FREE event will run from 10am till 1pm where guests will be able to handle real archaeology and ask questions about the historical finds.

Ellie will also be discussing the Portable Antiquities Scheme, the voluntary scheme that records the increasing numbers of archaeological finds from members of the public, including metal detectorists. She will explain how Treasures are reported and put through the legal process to determine the future home for artefacts.

Come along to discover some of Kettering’s fascinating finds!

Guy Holloway, Head of Corporate & Cultural Services at Kettering Borough Council, said: “Treasure day at the Manor House Museum is an exciting opportunity to get an understanding of the archaeological finds within Kettering. It allows members of the public to see first-hand the evolution of artefacts and their history.”

Councillor Lloyd Bunday, Kettering Borough Council’s Deputy Leader and Portfolio Holder for Community and Leisure, said: “The Manor House Museum and Gallery host a variety of fascinating exhibitions and events that reveal Kettering’s culture and heritage over the years. Treasure day is a great way to celebrate our history and get involved with some interesting discoveries.”
