Dr Fredrik Thomasson : Justifying and Criticizing the Removals of Antiquities in Ottoman Lands: Tracking the Sigeion Inscription

Friday 14 January 2011

London Debates 2009 continues to be productive. Dr Fredrik Thomasson (Uppsala University), who was one of the contributors to the Debates, ‘What role do museums play in the globalisation of culture?’, recently published an article that resulted from his paper Justifying and Criticizing the Removals of Antiquities in Ottoman Lands: Tracking the Sigeion Inscription (or available here) in which he attempts to address some of the issues lacking in the restitution/museum polemics debate.
