Whilst the museum staff can identify archaeological remains, we are fortunately host to the Sussex Finds Liaison Officer (FLO),  who attends every three months.

The FLO is next attending the museum on  29 February  2020.

Between 11am-3pm  The FLO hosts appointments  and between  3pm-4pm  drop-ins are welcomed.

Finders  can book an appointment directly at flo@sussexpast.co.uk or the telephone 01273 405731.

From 3-4 people can pop in freely to drop-off finds, but please let the FLO know in advance if you would like finds returned.

We would also recommend that members of the public contact one of the below institutions for object identification services.
