1 Million Euros for Illicit Antiquities Research at Glasgow


Look at that! An article in the Guardian: Glasgow team gets £1m grant to study illegal trade in antiquitiesThis is wicked exciting on many levels and, actually, is a good little article to send out to the uninitiated. Here’s to Simon Mackenzie and Neil Brodie who:

will spend the next four years gathering and analysing data on the movements and motives of traffickers, the types of activities involved, such as illegal excavation; transit and purchase; and pricing structures. The aim is to develop new approaches to regulate the international trade of cultural goods and help policymakers better define laws to fight criminal activities.

Now your favorite blogstress needs to work on writing her grant proposal and getting her passport renewed so she can apply for another UK visa.
