On the Agenda
I am aware that some of the older stories are still 'live'. These include the identification of objects in North American collections by the Greek authorities; material from FYROM; and long-term loans to museums.
There are also much larger questions to address. Is it possible to start a new museum of archaeological material without acquiring recently-surfaced antiquities? What can dealers do to avoid selling 'toxic antiquities'? What is the scale of the market?
As always, I welcome comments and suggestions from readers.
