Evening Lecture
The Diplomat, the Dealer, and the Digger: Writing the History of the Antiquities Trade in 19th-Century Greece
Relatively little is known today about the ways in which the antiquities trade was organized in 19th-century Europe. In this lecture, Dr. Yannis Galanakis, Lecturer in Greek Prehistory, University of Cambridge, explores how the commodification of the past became inextricably interwoven with power politics, and gave rise to different collecting attitudes and debates on cultural property, ownership, and the value of things in the modern world. Sponsored by the American Institute of Archaeology. Free admission.
