Its author Michael McCullough a Brooklyn lawyer "has extensive experience in art, cultural heritage, and international trade matters. He is a former associate counsel to Sotheby's worldwide...". He has done some work on behalf of the ACCG and was recently involved in the 'Tarby' case. We look forward to seeing his contributions to the debate on the ethical commercial use of the world's cultural heritage. I'll wait for a few more posts before deciding in which sidebar to put the link.
British archaeologist living and working in Warsaw, Poland. Since the early 1990s (or even longer) a primary interest has been research on artefact hunting and collecting and the market in portable antiquities in the international context and their effect on the archaeological record.
"coiney" - a term I use for private collector of dug up ancient coins, particularly a member of the Moneta-L forum or the ACCG
"heap-of-artefacts-on-a-table-collecting" the term rather speaks for itself, an accumulation of loose artefacts with no attempt to link each item with documented origins. Most often used to refer to metal detectorists (ice-cream tubs-full) and ancient coin collectors (Roman coins sold in aggregated bulk lots)
"tekkie" - metal detectorist/metal detecting (a form of artefact hunting)
