No, You Shouldn't Buy Stolen Objects! With Dr. Patty Gerstenblith

With the Museum of the Bible rarely out of the news due to their stolen, smuggled, or faked artifacts, the antiquities market is getting more attention than ever. Dr. Patty Gerstenblith, research professor of law at DePaul University, founding president of the Lawyers Committee for Cultural Heritage Preservation, and former chair of the President's Cultural Property Advisory Committee in the U.S. Department of State is not only an expert in this area of law, but consulted with the founders of the Museum of the Bible at the beginning of their venture. She very kindly agreed to join us to talk about the legalities of buying antiquities, and why the Museum of the Bible just keeps getting it wrong. Dr Gerstenblith on Twitter: @PGerstenblithFurther reading: https://displayatyourownrisk.org/gerstenblith/
