In Israel, “It is important for the public to know that any excavation at an antiquities site or discovery of antiques, even in private grounds, requires immediate reporting to the Antiquities Authority”

But in Britain yer don't have to if it's not gold, and yer free to sell it. And if it IS gold they pay yer. Either way, yer win. I love this obby. Capital Gains, wots that?
