This month's newsletter brings you an eye-opening report debunking the ivory/terrorism financing myth, articles on the first-ever prosecution of cultural destruction as a war crime at the ICC, an amazingly rich tomb and underwater discoveries in Greece, seizures in France of a Picasso and in the US of cuneiform tablets, museum exhibitions and a highly successful teaching tool using art objects, a major statement by the AAMD on safe harbor for antiquities, an extended summary of the Conflict Antiquities event at the Metropolitan Museum, and for a little relief from the seriousness of it all, pigs rooting out archaeological evidence and a transformation of Lenin into Darth Vader!
