As promised, here is a compilation of news reports, summaries of academic articles and several videos (mostly from The British Museum) that I posted in my social media accounts over the past few months. These were items that seemed particularly relevant to those with an interest in antiquities and ancient art and that were of special interest to me. They are not arranged in any particular order below. All will open in a new window or tab. I hope you’ll find some enjoyable reading and viewing.
