After the tour has ended you are required to put all your finds over 50 years old in a bag with your details on it. Roy will then examine your finds and then apply on your behalf for the export license. If any of the artefacts are of greater importance then they can be taken into the local museum where experts will ID and record the item giving you a greater depth of information. The Application normaly takes between one to three months or so to be assessed. Once the application has been granted the item will be mailed to the finder with the license attached by secure mail.
