Introduction to Criminology and Archaeology: Studies in Looted Antiquities
Mackenzie, S. and Green, P. (2009), ‘Introduction’, in S. Mackenzie and P. Green (eds.), Criminology and Archaeology: Studies in Looted Antiquities (Oxford: Hart).
This collection is the product of a collaborative venture between criminologists and archaeologists concerned with the international market in illicit antiquities. Criminology has long been interested in transnational crime and its regulation; archaeology in the pedagogical consequences of antiquities looting. In the chapters presented here both disciplines present new data and analysis to forge a more coherent understanding of the nature and failings of the regulatory framework currently in place to combat the criminal market in looted antiquities.
