CAS Grant to Support the Study of Finds Reported to the
Portable Antiquities Scheme in Cheshire

Each year hundreds of finds from across Cheshire are recorded by
the Portable Antiquities Scheme, but their potential for improving our understanding of the history of the county is neglected. We are offering
a grant of GBP 700 every two years to encourage this research.
