In this Newsweek article about new technology to track antiquities, I weigh in on the question of how ISIS may or may not be looting antiquities for financial gain.

James Mosher of Crain's Connecticut covers my discussion of stolen antiquities from my reading at the Ferguson Library in Stamford, Connecticut. Read more about how a recent case involving Yale returning art to Peru demonstrates the new rules for ancient treasures.
LifeZette's Heather Hunter covers the danger facing antiquities in the face of ISIS. She discusses my newest book, "Sacred and Stolen."
This summer, I worked with students at Carleton College to create an exhibit to explore my alma mater's history, in honor of its Sesquicentennial. I spoke with a Minnesota entertainment guide about the process of creating the exhibit. Read it online by clicking below!
I chat with Book Trib about "Sacred and Stolen," what it was like to be a museum director, and more. Watch below!
