Please join us for a panel discussion with The Past Sold co-curators, Fiona Greenland and Morag Kersel, who will present the contrasting episodes of artifact movement featured in the exhibition: the legal, state-sponsored sale of artifacts from the Early Bronze Age site of Bab adh Dhra’ (Jordan) during the late 1970s, and the illegal looting of archaeological sites in Syria and Iraq during the current and ongoing armed conflict in the region. Reception to follow.
