Finds Sessions

Littlehampton Museum hosts regular Finds Sessions, where visitors can bring in archaeological objects to be identified. 

The Finds Sessions are linked to the Portable Antiquities Scheme and are run by the Finds Liaison Officer (FLO) for Sussex. 

The date of the next Finds Session will be in the first quarter of 2024 - please check back for updates

Appointments with the Finds Liaison Officer (FLO) must be booked in advance by contacting the FLO on You will be given an appointment time by the FLO.

Finds Sessions will take place in the Fleming Room within the Manor House, which is accessed via a separate entrance rather than the usual Museum entrance. As you face the Main Entrance of the Museum the Fleming Room entrance is to your left along the path and past the bell. On the day the door will have a sign on indicating that finds sessions are taking place. Please knock on the door at the time of your appointment and wait to be let in. To make things safe for our staff and visitors the Museum has put a number of additional measures in place. If you have any symptoms of COVID-19 please do not attend your appointment.


  • The meetings will take place in the Fleming room, which is separated from the museum and which will be well ventilated, the room will be laid out to ensure social distancing between yourself and the FLO.
  • Hand sanitiser will be available upon entry into the building.
  • We ask that you wear a face covering if you can.
  • Tables will be cleaned in between sessions.

If you have any questions please contact the FLO directly on  email 

The FLO will also be able to offer advice on a whole range of issues surrounding metal detecting and the discovery of archaeological material
