Just a quick post hoping for some of your experiences of dealing with your local finds liaison officer. Have you found it easy to report your finds to them and receive positive identification, have you had any problems ?
I personally haven't had much luck. A while ago I found a bronze ring this ring had a lovely pattern around it it was a very crude ring with a crude solder joint. It looked old to me very old. Plus the fact I found iton exposed clay on a beach that had reportings of roman fibula broaches, roman grot coins and also a celtic stater.
I took several high definition photos and wrote a detailed description of the ring and where it was found and also what other items has been found around that area. I found my local flo email address and sent it to them.
The response was rubbish, basically because I didnt receive a response after one month. So I thought maybe the email wasnt received so I resent it, along with sending it to another two flo just for good measure. Still after another month I had not heard a thing and still to this day haven't. I have tried ringing them and they are never im the office
Are they that over worked or do the have the best holiday package ever ?
Please let me know you're experiences bad abd good.
