Flash, Bang, Wallop What a Picture!
Portable Antiquities Scheme volunteer and expert photographer Rod Trevaskus gave an enthusiastically welcomed presentation on the photography of archaeological artefacts to 30 members of the Wrexham Heritage Society at their 8th May meeting. Society members take time to research the history of the discoveries made with the aid of their metal detectors and record them with CPAT for the much-respected
Portable Antiquities Scheme. Wanting to take more responsibility for recording their finds society Chairman Roy Griffiths and President Charles Cater invited Rod to explain how to take a good picture and to share hints and tips about photographing archaeological artefacts.
At the same meeting it was announced that Wrexham Heritage Society had been awarded a Heritage Lottery Fund grant to enable them to buy audio-visual equipment with which to record finds made by club members and to share the results of their research with the public.
