Alternative Strategies in Confronting Looting and Trafficking in Defense of Peruvian Portable Heritage. (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT Alvaro Higueras.

In this presentation I aim to address two issues: first, the state of looting and trafficking of monumental and portable heritage in Peru today, and, second, to propose new strategies to contribute to solving the problem of looting and trafficking. The novel strategies I propose are only part of the solution: they should be compounded and should help strengthen the effectiveness of old, tried and partially successful enforcement strategies. The diversification of options is urgent amidst...

Antiquities, drugs, guns, diamonds, wildlife: toward a theory of transnational criminal markets in illicit goods (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT Simon Mackenzie.

The illicit trade in looted cultural property has been observed to be an example of a ‘transnational criminal market’. Other examples of transnational criminal markets are given in the non-exhaustive list in the title. These markets function in respect of a variety of goods – some are ‘collectibles’ markets (eg. antiquities; wildlife), some trade ‘consumables’ (eg. drugs; diamonds; counterfeit/pirated goods), while others move non-consumer goods that are not collectibles (eg. guns; radiological...


The Appropriation of Native American Cultural Property: Comparing the U.S. and French Contexts (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT Michelle Turner.

When Native American sacred objects were recently auctioned off as art in Paris, many Americans were shocked by the headlines. American institutions and archaeologists continue to face their own histories of appropriation of Native American culture and objects, but many in the U.S. still seem surprised by the extent to which European institutions resist calls for more sensitive handling of cultural property. Others see a disparity between a widespread acknowledgement of the need to repatriate...


The Archaeologists Role in Looting: Commodity Fetishism and the Tragedy of the Commons (2017)

Citation DOCUMENT Erin Ray. Holley Moyes.

In Marxist philosophy, commodity fetishism imbues an object with a value not inherent to the object itself. This paper explores the ways in which archaeologists have contributed to the fetishizing of archaeological material which in turn promotes the looting of archaeological sites. By nature of our profession, old objects hold more value than modern ones or even replicas. Contextual information about these objects is arguably just as, if not more, important than the object itself. In many...

Assessing Contemporary Human Activity at Sites in the Anasazi Archeological District, San Juan National Forest: A Quantitative Approach (2004)

DOCUMENT Ralph J. Hartley. Anne Wolley Vawser.

The purpose of this study is to: (I) assess whether associations exist between a set of characteristics of a prehistoric site observable on the ground surface and evidence of modern human activities at that place; (II) ascertain how evidence of subsurface “looting” varies with characteristics of the site that reflect varied prehistoric activity; and (III) assess the vulnerability of sites to contemporary human activities during exposure after periods of inundation.

Bad Behavior and Good Guidelines: Applying the Society for American Archaeology’s Principles of Archaeological Ethics to the Performance of Archaeology in Videogames (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT L. Meghan Dennis.

Within videogames, archaeology is often not itself a focus, but provides a flavor or character-defining style based on pre-existing stereotypes of the discipline as presented in other forms of popular culture. This frequently results in utilizing the practice of archaeology as a form of secondary content, designed to provide a financial or game-play bonus to the player character, while allowing access to objects of cultural patrimony and license to commodify those objects. Through an application...

Bioarchaeology and Looting: A Case Study from Sudan (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT Katherine Kinkopf. Jess Beck.

Disturbing the dead has been considered a criminal activity in the Nile Valley since the trial of Egyptian tomb robbers in 1100 BCE. Looting is one of the most destructive forces at archaeological sites; grave robbing, in particular, leaves human remains and cultural heritage irreparably damaged. During 2007-2008, the Oriental Institute Nubian Expedition (OINE) worked to identify, record, and preserve important archaeological sites that have since been destroyed by the Merowe Dam. Al-Widay, a...


BOOM BABY!": engaging the public through social media in response to "American Digger (2013)

In this paper we present our public outreach efforts in response to the American "reality" television series "American Digger," which portrays looting of archaeological resources as a desirable and profitable enterprise at the expense of archaeological context and communal knowledge of our past.  Our efforts included blog posts, the creation and dissemination of a Change.org petition, and the facilitation of involvement and open dialogue through the creation and ongoing administration of a...

Cultural Resources: Problems Protecting and Preserving Federal Archeological Resources (1987)

DOCUMENT J. Dexter Peach. United States General Accounting Office, Washington, DC.

The Four Corner states of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah contain a wealth of archaeological resources due to the nature of the prehistoric peoples who occupied the area and the dry climate and soil that have preserved the archaeological sites and artifacts. Concerned about federal agencies' ability to protect and ensure the preservation of archaeological resources, the Subcommittee on Public Lands, National Parks, and Forests, Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, asked GAO...


The Current State of Looting, Preservation, and Education in the Casas Grandes Region (2015)

Citation DOCUMENT Fabiola Silva. Jane H. Kelley.

The looting of archaeological artifacts is a worldwide phenomenon prompting the destruction of our world heritage. Looting and the antiquities market across the U.S/Mexico border is a complex bi-national issue that has highly impacted the archaeological record. A previous examination of the history of looting in Casas Grandes, Chihuahua, Mexico demonstrates three periods of looting: the Museum Period (1900-1939), the Private Collector Period (1940-1979), and the Present Period (1980-present)....
