Towards a Bibliography for Looted Antiquities: Recent Returns

Over on SAFE Corner there has been a discussion about the desirability (or otherwise) of a bibliography on the looting of antiquities. I suspect many bibliographies created for graduate (and undergraduate) students are located on university VLEs and are thus not on public view. (It would be interesting to know  what colleagues are doing and I would welcome a guest access.)

For now I offer a select bibliography for research with Christopher Chippindale (University of Cambridge) on the recent returns to Italy and Greece. I include our 2000 paper as this discusses some of the private collections that feature in the later returns (see also a relevant interview in The New Yorker).


  • Chippindale, C., and D. W. J. Gill.  2000. "Material consequences of contemporary classical collecting." American Journal of Archaeology 104: 463-511.
