Full Description

All over the world archaeological sites are being looted to feed an ever-expanding antiquities market. The phenomenon has been well-documented, by journalists and TV documentaries as much by academic study, but its true scale remains something for conjecture. With this in mind, in October 1999 the McDonald Institute convened an international symposium of archaeologists and other interested parties, which allowed them to give accounts of looting in their own countries, share their experiences and to consider possible remedies or preventative measures. The proceedings of the symposium are now published in this volume with contributors from many of the major museums and university departments in Europe, Africa, America and Asia. The volume concludes with a series of aims and objectives proposed by the International Standing Committee on the Traffic in Illicit Antiquities.
