Archaeology collections

Search the collections by clicking here. The archaeology collection includes a huge range of archaeological objects found in Buckinghamshire, from prehistoric stone tools, through Roman coins, to medieval pottery. It includes everything related to human activity, from the very earliest people who lived here, over 300,000 years ago, up until Tudor times, around 1500 AD.

Although the museum currently only collects archaeology from Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes, we do have small closed collections of foreign material, notably Egyptology.

Visiting the collections

To find out more or see any of the collection that is not currently on display, you can make an appointment with the collections team, either individually or as a small group. Call us on 01296 624519 or email museum@buckscountymuseum.org for details and charges.

Group visits can focus on a particular type of object, finds from a specific area (like your village), or just be a general introduction to Bucks Archaeology.

Archaeological archives

Apart from individual finds we are also the standard repository for archaeological fieldwork archives from Bucks and Milton Keynes.

Contracting archaeological units wishing to deposit archives at the museum should contact the Keeper of Archaeology to obtain our current procedures.
