Portable Antiquities of the Netherlands

Status: Completed
Duration: 2016 - 2020

Private metal detector users collect portable antiquities (metal artefacts) from arable fields or construction works. Their finds are very valuable to professional archaeologists, but an oversight of these finds is missing. The project Portable Antiquities of the Netherlands (PAN) wants to provide human resources and an online database for portable antiquities to make these available to scientists, heritage professionals and spatial planners.
DANS takes care for the sustainable storage within this project.
