Varys from my experience in the US. private property is one thing but if it is of unusual or extremely signficant social or theological-spiritual value ie. bones etc of human remains (generally Native American) it's usually controlled by state and or federal law.
 
Which i endorse as I detest antiquities thieves as much as forum spammers.Big smile
 
Thanks for your coments.

I continue to be amazed at Roman finds 1500-2000 years old still being found almost with rediculous regularity in Britain. Somethings up! End of Days?Tongue

I have several friends who are landscape gardeners in the UK.  2 of them work out of Manchester, which means "Main Camp".  They have an extensive collection of Roman coins and other small artifacts that they have collected over the years, just from cultivating and maintaining peoples flower beds.  2 years ago they had it appraised at over a 100,000 lbs.
 
And I spend hours scrounging for an arrowhead.  ConfusedWink

I hate pictures in low resolution and unclear.There are not reasons for news than!We have to trust someone about something we can not see!This is not your fault of course.But post about gluon is good.Most of artifact's pictures on Net are "invisible".With P.S.:"Trust me there is picture/script of this/that?"Are we stupid to see that?Underestimated for sure we are!
