Item description for Trade in Illicit Antiquities: The Destruction of the World's Archaeological Heritage (McDonald Institute Monographs) by Neil Brodie...
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 as by academic study, but its true scale remains a matter 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 the possible remedies or preventative measures. The proceedings of the Symposium are now published in this volume.
