Identification of Finds

The Archaeology Service is able to identify all types of archaeological artefacts from North Hertfordshire.

If you find what you think may be an archaeological object, please contact the Archaeology Service  to carry out an identification. We will give the finder a description and date for the object along with a photograph. With unusual objects, this may take up to four weeks, but most finds can be identified straight away.

We pass details of finds on to the Hertfordshire County Council Historic Environment Record, which records the location of archaeological finds, buildings, fieldwork and remains of all types in the county.
We usually ask for the National Grid Reference for every findspot. If this is not possible, we will ask you to mark it on a map.

We regret that it is not possible to give valuations for the things we identify.
