On the 15th of May at 7pm Tenby Museum & Art Gallery Presents Saving Treasures; Telling Stories is an HLF funded project which is acquiring archaeological objects for local and national collections, providing training for heritage professionals and volunteers and engaging local communities with their pasts through the funding of community archaeology projects led by local museums throughout Wales.

The Saving Treasures; Telling Stories Project is a partnership project between Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales, The Federation of Museums and Art Galleries of Wales (The FED) and the Portable Antiquities Scheme in Wales (PAS Cymru) promoting the portable archaeological heritage of Wales through acquiring finds made by the public. The project secured Heritage Lottery Grant funding in October 2014 through the Collecting Cultures programme and runs for five years.

The Project will contribute to the work of museums and their collections by:-

Strengthening community and cultural identities and empowering people through learning, participation and inspiration. In addition, it will:

  • Acquire artefacts for national and local collections.
  • Bring together metal detector clubs, local museums and communities.
  • Enable diverse communities to engage with evidence for their past.

 

Beneath our Feet is a joint project with Tenby Museum & Narberth Museum and Saving Treasures; Telling Stories.  It will also involve treasure finds from other museums in the Pembrokeshire Museums Association (PMA) as well as finds from Pembrokeshire Prospectors. It will involve a series of events throughout the project.
