PROTECTING FINDS IN THE FIELD
Most deterioration of bronze, copper, brass, lead and pewter takes place after it has been exposed to the oxygen in the air for a short while. The aim should be to minimise the exposure as
much as possible. Carry 2 containers, a small one for coins and a larger one for artefacts, both with wide mouth screw tops.
Fill each with small pieces of cloth soaked in household paraffin. Wrap your finds in the cloths as soon as possible after you find them. Keep the containers in your car, or in your detector bag, and maybe the smaller one in your finds bag. As an alternative, you can put finds in your finds bag and cover them with a handful of moist soil. This works well, if the soil is moist
