A Brief Blog Profile: Looting Matters
Looting Matters is a "discussion of the archaeological ethics surrounding the collecting of antiquities."
I was first introduced to Looting Matters by a friend, who understands my love of history, culture, and old things.
Looting Matters provides a fascinating glimpse that historical items that have surfaced and what their future holds. It's written by David Gill, professor of archaeological heritage and head of the division of humanities at University Campus Suffolk.
A recent post includes a piece about two Khmer statues being returned to Cambodia from New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. Another interesting post is about an upcoming lecture Gill will give exploring the "background to the donation of the "Disney collection" to the University of Cambridge, and the establishment of the Disney chair of archaeology."
