CIfA Ethics Tournament

Deadline for entries for the CIfA Ethics Tournament in Brighton at is 16 February.

Define 'looting'. Do you mean collection-driven exploitation of the archaeological record or not? What kind of an 'ethics' question is it if not?

Would it be ethical for the PAS to handle a collector's artefacts without seeing clear documentation awarding title of ownership to the finder? In the case of a treasure find, is it ethical to give a finder a reward, but expect archaeologists to recover knowledge of context without any such reward? Is it ethical for fieldworkers to agree to work under such conditions and in effect for an artefact hunter and collector? Is it ethical for data on collected items to only be available through a pay-to-view website?
