Greco-Roman and Egyptian Antiquities Valuations


Collectors: Got any loose Graeco-Roman or ancient Egyptian "stuff" at home? Wanna know how much it's worth?

"Valuemystuff" seem to miss out questions about collection history and any paperwork you may have for it (as unimportant to value or anything else?)
It is a common misconception that only archaeologists find antiquities and in fact 80% of antiquities are discovered by private collectors who are amazed at the treasures they have uncovered. The category is very closely linked to scholarly research and most associated through stories told by museums who continue to preserve and invest in the remaining rare artefacts that are found.

Garbled ghost of a PAS press-release there? Its not clear how many experts they have nor why "she" has a beard in the photo.

So, is it true that 80% of the archaeological record (of the UK, presumably) lies in private hands just waiting to be evaluated - though in primarily financial terms, hoping to find a museum that will "invest" by buying them off you?

That's the ones of course where the seller can demonstrate legality of excavation and export and that they therefore have title. Yes, "valuemystuff"?
