Archaeologists, Collectors, and Museums: Redressing the Ethical Divide in the face of Modern Conflict

Start: Oct 12, 2015 06:30 PM


Mark Merrony, University of Oxford


Monday October 12th

in conjunction with the Anglo-Israel Archaeological Society


Beth Shean Bust

Informed by his diverse career in archaeological publishing, the museum world, and the commercial sphere of ancient art, Dr Mark Merrony examines the ethical issues that polarize archaeologists in their relations with public and private collectors, and he examines legislation in the face of modern conflict in the Middle East and of the possibilities of future reconciliation.

Dr Merrony is director of Ariadne Galleries, London and New York, editor in chief of Minerva Magazine, and a Supernumerary Fellow of Wolfson College, Oxford. He published 'Socio-economic Aspects of Late Roman Mosaics in Phoenicia and Northern Palestine' in 2013. A book entitled 'The Death of Rome', about the fall of the West Roman Empire, is to appear next year, to coincide with the 240th anniversary of Edward Gibbon’s History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.


Reception from 6.30pm, Lecture 7.00pm
