    I couldn't find any distinct laws just for Ohio, but I did find this. I know in Ohio if it's on your land you can pretty do what ever you want to it. There is a man in my area who bought a known village site that was on commercial property and he has been digging it for several years now. As long as he doesn't hit any graves and is just digging the middens he is okay, even though this site is listed on the Historic Register. So just stay on private property with permission and you should fine surface hunting or digging.


    A series of laws passed in 1906, 1966, 1979, and 1992 forbid the taking of Native American artifacts from federal land, including national forests, parks and Bureau of Land Management land, unless granted a permit to do so. Over the years, states have passed their own laws that restrict the taking of Native American objects from state land, echoing the federal laws. There are also laws that deal with pre-Columbian art and taking native works out of other countries.

    ... I have seen that in any great undertaking it is not enough for a man to depend simply upon himself.
