An Alternative View
There are already a number of blogs about cultural property issues. Most share what can be fairly characterized as an "archaeology over all" perspective, i.e., the view that preservation of "archaeological context" trumps all other interests. Hopefully, this blog will help provide another perspective, that of an ancient coin collector and lawyer who has tried to ensure that the small businesses of the numismatic trade receive fair treatment from government regulators. In that spirit, I hope this blog provides a useful counterpoint to the views found in most blogs about cultural property issues as well as what can be usually found in the main stream media. Informed and polite comment, is, of course, welcome.
