UK Illegal artefact hunting survey results - not yet

"The Project - Nighthawks and Nighthawking: damage to archaeological sites in the United Kingdom and Crown Dependencies caused by the illegal search for and removal of antiquities - is now finished". Not before time, it was originally scheduled to end in 2007, but I understand the gathering of information about illegal metal detecting from responsible metal detectorists and others has not been as straightforward as could have been hoped.

Apparently, despite it "being finished" we have to wait another four months to actually learn the results (why?). The results of the project and final report will apparently be launched at the Society of Antiquaries in London (strange choice of venue one would have thought) on the morning of Monday 16th February 2009.
