Murton Mayday- Bring us your finds!

Always wondered what that ancient looking sherd of pottery was on your sideboard?

Pondered what it was that you found whilst walking the other day- is it an archaeological artefact?

Then we may be able to help!

If you have finds or artefacts that you have come across whilst on a walk, inherited or found whilst digging your garden and would like to know more, we would welcome the chance to look at them, record and potentially identify them at our finds stall at Murton May Day.

There will be members of staff from the Glamorgan-Gwent Archaeological Trust, along with a representative of the Portable Antiquities Scheme to help identify and record items that you have.

On Monday 02nd May, between 2.00pm – 4.00pm our stall will be located in the Murton May Day Event, alongside a number of local displays and activities.

  1. So disappointed to have missed this event as we have found all sorts of things in our garden and old farm house. When is the next event?


    • Hi Jody, we have a few events coming up, we will be at the Neath Abbey Open Day (Saturday 9th July 11-4pm), Gower Chilli Festival (Saturday & Sunday 23rd-24th July 10-6pm) and the Gower Show (Sunday August 7th 10-6pm). We would love to look at your finds, you are more than welcome to pop down and see us whenever you can!


      • Thanks for your response. Sounds interesting. Where are you based if we wanted to pop down or did you mean just to the stalls? Are you around on Saturdays if you do have a public base? We would be fascinated to learn more about our 300 ish year old house. Kind regards, Jody


      • Hi Jody, you are more than welcome to pop down to our workplace if you are not able to come along to the stall events. Our headquarters is based at Heathfield House, Heathfield, Swansea, SA1 6EL- if you could ring or email me to let me know before hand, just to ensure one of us is in on that day. Unfortunately, we are not open on Saturdays but are open Monday to Friday 9:00am to 4:00pm, looking forward to seeing your finds!
