Polish Collectors' Rights Advocate?
It was not too long ago that Poland broke free from Communism and its apparatchicks. So its disheartening that Polish officials have apparently seized a legitimately purchased Egyptian artifact on no more than the say-so of representatives of Egypt's military dictatorship. Oddly enough, archaeo-blogger Paul Barford is the one who has brought all this to our attention. So, why is such arbitrary action wrong in Poland, but to be applauded on his blog when it takes place in the United States?
