This poster addresses the ethical conflict faced by archaeological conservators in dealing with illicit objects. The issue is explored through the case study of the Crosby Garrett helmet. While there is still no comprehensive set of guidelines, the poster discusses future steps to amend codes and work towards restricting the illicit trade of antiquities.
This post refers to coursework done for ARCLG141 (2015-16), one of the core courses of the UCL MA Principles of Conservation.
As part of their assessed work for this course, students were asked to design and produce a poster communicating specific aspects of conservation. We hope you enjoy our work! Comments are most welcome.
