Towards a Bibliography for Archaeological Ethics

I have been preparing an introductory bibliography on Archaeological Ethics for my postgraduate students. This is at present located as a list on WorldCat. You can easily see the location of the nearest copy of the book to you (just type in your postcode or zipcode), or download (including to Endnote).

What would readers of Looting Matters recommend?

The Ethics of Archaeology: Philosophical Perspectives on Archaeological Practice, ed. Scarre & Scarre, is presumably the sort of thing you're looking for. (Declaration of interest: Geoffrey Scarre is my Ph.D. supervisor.)

Here are a couple of sources I found while in Germany, which might be useful.

Flasher, M. (ed.). 2000. Bewahren als Problem. Schutz archäologischer Kulturgüter. Freiburg: Rombach Wissenschaften.

Heilmeyer, W.D. and Eule, J.C. (eds.). 2004. Illegale Archäologie? Internationale Konferenz über zukünftige Probleme bei unerlaubtem Antikentransfer,23. - 25.5.2003 in Berlin, aus Anlass des 15. Jahrestages der Berliner Erklärung. Berlin: Weißensee Verlag.

I've been told there are plans to translate the latter volume into English, but I've been unable to find out when this might happen. I do know the individual manuscripts have been translated.

This will be an excellent resource for those of us in grad school too. Please make sure you keep a prominent link on your front page.
