Penalty For Breaking UK Treasure Laws


Recommended Posts

 

Some may have wondered what would happen to metal detectorists in the UK if they try to get away with not reporting the finds in the proper fashion.  A friend of mine sent me this link which shows some of the consequences.

Yes, when people break laws in the U.K. they are punished, as they should be. Ripping off the landowner in particular is really bad. The guy trusted then and thanks the thanks he gets.
