Abstract:

Ms Waxman examines how art and archaeological treasures from ancient cultures brought back to the West in the 18th and 19th centuries became the core collection for the great museums. In recent years, the countries where ancient civilizations originated have begun to push back, taking museums to court, prosecuting curators, and threatening to force the return of these priceless objects. Waxman examines the implications for the preservation of the objects themselves and for how we understand and deal with the world's shared cultural heritage.
