The laws regarding the exploration, location and recovery of treasure and artifacts differ from country to country and from land recovery to marine recovery. In the United States, there are even different laws which have to be adhered to depending if the recovered items are within State waters, generally from the coastline to 3 miles off shore, or Federal waters, generally from 3 miles offshore to International waters.

 

Abandoned Shipwreck Act of 1987 - Untied States (Marine Recovery)

Due to the belief of potential conflict between State and Federal Laws regulating the recovery of treasure and artifacts and also to empower the States to govern the rights of their own waters, this legislation was passed and set into law in 1987. Generally, this law pertains to all recoveries from the shoreline to 3 miles out to sea.

Federal Admiralty Law - United States (Marine Recovery)

This is the body of law governing any recoveries in Federal waters which are generally from 3 miles out to sea to International waters.

Archaeological Resources Protection Act of 1979 - United States (Land Recovery)

This is the body of law governing any recoveries on Federal Land, such as National Parks and Indian Lands.

Treasure Trove Act 1996 - England, Wales and Northern Ireland

This is the body of law governing any recoveries in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
