Marine Antiquities Scheme (MAS)

Packed house for the launch of new Scheme

The British Museum launched today the new Marine Antiquities Scheme (MAS)  to encourage divers and others to report their finds. This was accompanied by a presentation by the new BM Director Hartwig Fischer. Until now the reporting of loose finds from the sea and shore was done under the PAS. Here is the website,
The MAS is funded by The Crown Estate and implemented by Wessex Archaeology. The MAS is largely based on the Portable Antiquities Scheme managed by The British Museum. In addition to this website, there is an app available for download to Android or iOS based hand held devices.
The database is empty at the moment ("try porthole" the search engine suggests plaintively).
