Upcoming CPAC Meeting to Discuss Renewal and Possible Extension of Honduran Restrictions

The Cultural Heritage Center has provided advance notice of a CPAC meeting to discuss a potential renewal of current restrictions on Honduran Pre-Columbian objects as well as the possible expansion of restrictions to cover artifacts from the Colonial and Republican period as well.  While the advance notice is welcome, CPAC and the public could benefit from far greater transparency as to what artifacts may be subject to future restriction.  Guessing games do no one any good because they hamper intelligent public comment.

Surely the US CCPIA MOUs are not to protect artefacts, but combat pillage.
