A-S: Archaeology for Sale on the Streets of York

Welcome to Archaeo-Scope. In this series we take an archaeological perspective on modern culture; asking questions about current trends and observations from around the world.

Today, I get a chance to talk about a trade in archaeology which has bothered me for years.

Note: Regarding the Ancient Greek artefacts, the one in the video is from Italy. I was not able to photograph the artefacts from Greece as I was ejected from the premises ;p
