improvingthe qualityof life for all
Our aim is to improve the quality of life for allthrough cultural and sporting activities,support thepursuit of excellence,and champion the tourism,creative and leisure industries.
Notes:This Code has effect in England and Wales;a separate code has beenprepared for Northern Ireland.A Welsh language version of the Code is availableon request from the Department for Culture,Media and Sport.When the term ‘national museum’is used in this document it is intended to referto the British Museum in the case of finds from England and the NationalMuseums & Galleries of Wales in the case of finds from Wales.References to the‘Secretary of State’are to the Secretary of State for Culture,Media and Sport.If finders or others need further advice about any matters relating to the TreasureAct or this Code,then they are recommended to contact the Department forCulture,Media and Sport,the British Museum or (for Wales) the NationalMuseums & Galleries of Wales or their local finds liaison officer.Addresses andtelephone numbers are given in Appendix 2.In many places this Code gives examples of what may or may not constitutetreasure and provides advice as to how coroners may approach an inquest.It isintended to provide guidance for all those concerned with treasure.It isemphasised,however,that questions of whether or not any object constitutestreasure and how a coroner should conduct an inquiry into treasure are for thecoroner to decide on the facts and circumstances of each case.Nothing in thisCode obviates the need for a finder to give independent consideration as towhether something he has found might constitute treasure and where there isany doubt the find should be declared.Finders are strongly urged to report allarchaeological objects under the Portable Antiquities Scheme (see below,paragraph 3).
