Code of Practice for Treasure Trove in Scotland

Treasure Trove Code of Practice
 

A revised Code of Practice for Treasure Trove in Scotland was issued on 13 January 2016. This supersedes all previous versions.

The Code is designed to ensure that everyone who is involved with found objects of archaeological, historical or cultural significance understands the procedures which enable them to be claimed on behalf of the public.

A Summary of the revisions to the Code from the version issued in July 2014 has also been prepared.
