What to do if you find Archaeology

Archaeological Objects

The National Museum of Ireland is the repository of the national collection of archaeological objects. As there is no county museum or designated repository in County Kildare all archaeological objects that are discovered should, by law, be deposited with the National Museum, as they belong to the State. (Under the National Monuments Amendment Act 1994) When an item is found, you should contact the National Museum within 48 hours. Tel 01-6777444.
