Object identification

Staff are available to assist with the identification of objects relating to the department's collections.

We do not make a charge for this service. You can make an appointment to bring in objects for identification on Wednesdays between 14.00 - 16.30.  To arrange an appointment please e-mail or telephone the department in advance.

Objects are received for examination on the understanding that neither the British Museum nor its staff shall be liable for any loss or damage which may occur while the objects are in the Museum or in transit.

Members of staff cannot accept liability for opinions they may express, nor can they give valuations.
