Under UK law you are breaking the law if you facilitate someone in pursuit
of a criminal act.

items if doing so is in breach of UK law and as I showed, they actually
quote the law about export of archaeological material. It is surely worth
pursuing this if only to shut down at least one avenue of sales for such
