    You realy have no clue what you are talking about. France signed the Valletta Treaty in 1995, and that means I can use a detector on my own land, it even means I can use a detector on other peoples land if I have their permission. The only exception is if the land is protected, like the beaches of Normandie, or the wwI battle fields in the north. Also sites like Roman sites are protected, but I can search my own land with a metal detector, and I dont need any permission of anybody to do so.
    By the way; nice avator of the church in St Mere de Eglise, I can see the church and village from my window. That is where I live, and detect.

    Trésor - Wikipédia

    Droit[modifier]

    Dans presque tous les pays du monde on peut chercher des trésors. Quelques gouvernements accordent des licences, qui sont limitées dans le temps et payantes. Quelques fois ces États s'assurent aussi d'une quote-part au trésor, au cas où il est trouvé.

    Mais il y a une chose sur laquelle tous se retrouvent : il ne sera accordé aucune propriété tierce sans permission de recherche. Dans la plupart des pays, il est interdit de chercher et creuser dans des zones archéologiques. Des indications précieuses pourraient être ainsi détruites. En cas d'infraction, des punitions sévères sont prévues.

    Il n'est pas permis non plus de chercher en secret dans la propriété d'autrui, avec un détecteur de métaux, et de déterrer ensuite les plantations ou de retourner les pelouses, à moins que, le voisin ait expressément approuvé la recherche...

    La recherche avec un détecteur de métaux peut être lucrative sur les plages et piscines en plein air. Il est étonnant de voir tout ce que peuvent perdre les gens, des pièces aux bijoux de valeur... Un tresor est de la richesse cachée, rechercher ensuite par de nombreuses personne.

    TRANSLATION
    Law [edit]

    In almost all countries of the world can look for treasures. Some governments grant licenses, which are limited in time and pay. Sometimes these states also provide a share in the treasure, if it is found.

    But there is one thing on which all can be found: it will be given to any third party without permission property search. In most countries, it is forbidden to seek and dig in archaeological areas. Valuable information could then be destroyed. In case of violation, severe penalties are provided.

    It is not permissible to look secretly in someone else's property with a metal detector, and then dig up the plants or back lawns, unless the neighbor has expressly approved the research .. .

    Search with a metal detector can be lucrative on the beaches and outdoor pools. It is amazing to see that people can lose, pieces with jewels ... A treasure is hidden wealth, then search by many people.

    The use of metal detectors was controlled by the use of the war time Patrimony Act 1941 but, on the 18 December 1989 Law Number 89-900 (NOR: MCCX8900 163L) was adopted. However see appendix (L542) adopted in 2004.

    Article 1: No one may use metal detecting equipment for the purpose of searching for monuments and objects which could interest (concern?) prehistory, history, art or archaeology without first having obtained administrative authorisation issued according to the qualification of the applicant and also the nature and method of searching.

    Article 2: All publicity and instructions on the use of metal detectors must carry the warning of the prohibition stated in Article 1, the penalties involved and also the reason for this legislation.

    Article 3: Every infringement of the present law will be noted by officers, police agents and other law enforcement officers, as well as by officials, agents and guardians of Article 3 of the law number 80-532 of 15 July 1980 relative to the protection of public collections against acts of vandalism.

    Article 4: The reports drawn up by the various persons designated by Article 3 above will, until proved to the contrary, be given or sent, without delay, to the public prosecutor of the Republic in the jurisdiction where the offence was committed.

    Under French law the enactment of legislation is followed by the Decree which determines how the law will be applied. In this case the Decree states:

    Article 1 The authorisation to use metal detectors, provided for by Article1 of the 18 December 1989 Law is granted, on the demand of the interested party, by the license of the Prefect of the region in which the land to be searched is situated.

    The request for authorisation must establish the identity, competence and experience of the applicant as well as the location, scientific objective and the duration of the searches to be undertaken.

    When the searches are to be carried out on land which does not belong to the applicant, the written application must be accompanied by a document of consent written by the owner of the land and, if appropriate, anyone else who has the right.

    Article 2 Anyone who uses a metal detector to carry out searches of the sort described in Article 1 of the Law without having first obtained the authorisation required or who does not observe the requirements described in Article 1 of this Decree will be punished by the fine applicable for contraventions of the fifth class.
    The equipment used in the infringement will be confiscated.

    Article 3 Whoever publicises or draws up publicity for, or draw up information about the use of metal detectors and fails to draw attention to the requirements of Article 2 of the Law will be punished according to the penalties applicable for offences of the fifth class.

    Beaches are believed to be outside this Law.

    Appendix (L542)
    Art L542: No one can use equipment allowing metal target detection, to search monuments for objects of interest to pre-history, history, art or archaeology, without having first obtained an administrative authorisation, which may be given depending on the qualification of the applicant, as well as the nature of and reason for the research. Those who contravine are liable ti fines within the band class 5. The purpose of this regulation is the protection of archaeological sites. The authorisation of archaeological research using metal detectors requires the permission of the prefect of the area concerned.

    La loi et l'usage des détecteurs de métaux, translated;

    ...Detection of leisure development exonerated by this response should be free since an amateur prospector has the permission of the owner of land, it is guaranteed not find any known archaeological site and research do not aim to discover monuments or objects may be interested prehistory, history, art or archeology, which is actually quite difficult to judge the contrary. Incidental findings with historical or archaeological character should be declared legally, but it will prove that the object found by chance was not deliberately sought. Apart from any archaeological research, using a metal detector to search for goods families, and recent items lost jewelry, minerals, meteorites, is free and is not normally subject to any authorization.
