What actually the NCMD have forbidden is for its members to go artefact hunting while the country (including the PAS) is under lockdown.

We have met the detectorist Steve Auker who calls himself Man in a Hat before, mixed up with the cannabis cake affair, and then making money from selling defamatory teeshirts, not recording finds, but wanting higher Treasure ransoms.  He also features as a "wombler" (someone who hangs around supermarket car parks and fast food restaurants searching for discarded receipts which he exchanges for vouchers),  and as a contact of a nighthawk, wjhose name he's aware of but will not reveal...
