Renowned journalist and author Roger Atwood has traveled the world writing on the loss of cultural heritage to looters and the black market. Join him to explore the issues surrounding the global traffic in stolen archaeological objects, including how archaeology is coping with these losses and the state of these issues today. Atwood is a contributing editor at Archaeology and a London correspondent for ARTnews.
Following the lecture, the author will sign copies of his book Stealing History, available in the Museum Store.
This lecture is sponsored by the Boshell Family Lecture Series on Archaeology.
