New Featured Resource: Who Protects Antiquity?

We have added a new Featured Resource to the catalog: Who Protects Antiquity? was a forum held just a few days ago at the Graduate Center of CUNY, among four distinguished archaeologists who debated the contentious issue of cultural preservation today. Some of their topics are "How nationalism interferes with archaeology," "Current methods for discouraging looting," "The myriad causes of archaological destruction" and many others. There is also a lively Question & Answer sesssion after the main talk.

The Featured Resource also provides a few handy links into the AUR Library catalog and into some particularly useful sources on the web.

Don'f forget our Archive of Featured Resources, which has all of our previous Featured Resources.
