Man fined for damaging 150yo archaeological site

Related

A professional antique dealer's been handed a stiff $15,000 fine for damaging an archaeological site in Hamilton dating from the 1860s.

Adam Archer has also been ordered to pay $2,500 in costs after he was found digging for bottles on the site of the old Hamilton Club in February.

Historic Places Trust archeologist Rachel Darmody says Mr Archer was convicted of a similar offence in 2001 and that was a factor the sentencing judge took into account.
