it dont say nothing about nighthawking just *alleged that the arrested man obtained these artefacts through illegal metal detectingThe PAS will be gratified by the number of their "partners" which within a few hours of that mistaken statement being posted corrected him and pointed him to the definitions in the Oxford Archaeology Nighthawking Report and the relevant pages detailing detecting law on the PAS' own website.
UPDATE 18th September 2014:
Sorry, I must have been dreaming. Nobody corrected him in 24 hours, fellow list members (PAS-partners among them) seem quite happy with that definition of not-nighthawking-then. There is no page on the PAS website detailing the full range of antiquities laws relevant to artefact hunting and collecting in England and Wales. Not that many semi-literates would read one if there was.
