A Lifetime of Metal Detecting by Tony Mims and the Portable Antiquity Scheme

Now on display in the museum is a fantastic array of metal detecting finds from Wiltshire with many of them from the Malmesbury area! This exhibit has been put up by Tony Mims the finder of the Roman Malmesbury Coin Hoard. The number of interesting objects, including coins of all periods, rings, Roman brooches, buckles and everyday objects is staggering. Tony is a responsible metal detectorist and to complement his display we have exhibit boards explaining the Portable Antiquity scheme and the Treasure act law.
