" Looters Beware: The British Museum Is Leading an International Task Force Fighting the Illicit Trade in Egyptian Antiquities " (artnet news - Javier Pes, 21.01.2019)
Quote:
An expert team and powerful new database will help recover stolen artifacts and expose fake documentation. ...


" Circulating Artefacts: A cross-platform alliance against the looting of pharaonic antiquities " (British Museum)
Quote:
The Department of Ancient Egypt & Sudan has received a generous grant of £998,769 from the Cultural Protection Fund, which is run by the British Council in partnership with the Department of Digital, Culture, Media & Sport. The project will see the creation of an online semantic database of Egyptian and Nubian antiquities in circulation on the international art market and in private collections.

The database will be an important academic resource, but it will also serve to make the art market more transparent, while acting as a deterrent to looting and other illicit activity. The database will focus on antiquities from Egypt and Sudan, but the platform is configured so that it can be expanded to artefacts from other regions. ...

Greetings, Lutz.
