Dr Christos Tsirogiannis (University of Aarhus, Denmark) ‘Stolen antiquities: Investigating known unknowns in the international market’
Since 1994, the discoveries and confiscations of photographic and documentary archives from notorious and convicted dealers of illicit antiquities have rocked the antiquities market and its clients, and laid the foundations for a new discipline within archaeology. Forensic archaeological research on these archives has offered for the first time concrete evidence of the existence and operation of an international trafficking network. Starting from the historical background, this talk will proceed to examine selected cases of illicit antiquities, presenting step by step all the relevant photographic and other evidence. Dr Tsirogiannis will conclude by outlining the state of the field today, noting possibilities for further research, and offering a sense of what is to be expected in future from museums, auction houses, dealers’ galleries and private collectors.
