Film Description:Join Dr. White, Director of the Ban Chiang Project at the University of Pennsylvania Museum, for a talk about current investigations of Southeast Asia's rich cultural heritage and threats to its preservation. This event promises much food for thought, for scholars and non-scholars alike.
Following an outline of trends in Asian archaeology and a more in-depth discussion of recent archaeology in Laos, Dr. White will share her personal experience with a US Justice Department case against smuggling of looted antiquities, one of the largest legal cases to date of this kind.
