Criminology and Archaeology

I was reading Simon Mackenzie and Penny Green (eds.), Criminology and Archaeology: Studies in Looted Antiquities (Onati International Series in Law and Society; Oxford and Portland: Hart Publishing, 2009) today [Worldcat].

There is a particularly useful essay by Neil Brodie on 'Consensual Relations? Academic involvement in the illegal trade in ancient manuscripts'. It touches on the issue of Aramaic bowls from Iraq.

Roger Bland writes on 'The United Kingdom as a source country. Some problems in regulating the market in UK antiquities and the challenge of the internet'. This has an interesting summary of material on the internet.

Gordon Lobay has a disappointing contribution, 'Border controls in market countries as discincentives to antiquities  looting at source? The US-Italy bilateral agreement 2001'. It would have been helpful to have had some reflection on the "Nostoi".
