Both illicit antiquities and non-reported licit antiquities enter the antiquities market.

Both illicit antiquities and non-reported licit antiquities enter the antiquities market. Telling the two apart is almost impossible 
and in what way is it at all helpful to diffe3rentiate them in this manner when neither of them is in any way the proper manner to treat the archaeological record. IS it, British archaeologists?

So if you can't tell licit and illicit antiquities apart in "the market" how can you tell them apart in a database?

Can't. PAS could be handling oodles of looted objects in their dash to boost 'recorded artefact numbers'... You see. I am told that they do not routinely ask top seethe documentation of individual items where the landowner (from whose land and property they were TAKEN) signs off the transfer of ownership. It is blindingly obvious that they should be. Why are they not? Is making sure the database is created using ethically and legally obtained artefacts 'just too much trouble' for a jobsworth? Gosh.
