But Mrs Gibson added: "An object like this becomes the property of everyone."

                                 TREASURES FIND THEIR WAY TO THE CROWN

ALL historical finds whether made by chance, fieldwalking, metal detector or archaeological excavation are subject to the laws of Treasure Trove in Scotland.

The objects become the property of the Crown and may be claimed as treasure trove, and must be reported so they can be assessed.

The Queen and Lord Treasurer's Remembrancer is the Crown Office employee responsible for claiming objects for the Crown under the law of Treasure Trove.

The role of the QLTR also includes deciding on the allocation of objects to museums and the payment of rewards to finders.

The Crown Office, on behalf of the Scottish Government, is given the first chance to claim the object for the overall benefit of the nation. Small museums, including Orkney Museum, can also bid for the found objects to stay in the area where they were found.

Finds not claimed by the Crown are returned to the finder along with an individually numbered certificate stating that the Crown is not exercising its right to claim.

The full article contains 767 words and appears in
The Scotsman newspaper.
