Treasure cases 2018

This tracker is compiled by the council's Historic Environment team and reflects our involvement in the reporting and processing of treasure cases from Dorset.

We are mainly involved in the initial stages of reporting and identifying the finds and their return if disclaimed. We are not responsible for the inquest process, valuation or museum acquisition and often receive no information for cases at the later stages of the process. If your case has gone to valuation or is pending acquisition please contact the Treasure team at the British Museum (quoting the case number). We will remove treasure cases from this tracker soon after they are completed.
