Zoë Kontes, Archaeologist, CYA Alumna Trustee and professor of the MS355 IIllegal Antiquities summer course was awarded a Whiting Foundation Public Engagement Fellowship in 2016 to create a 12-part podcast which tells the stories of illicitly traded antiquities and the effect it has on archaeology today.
Looted: The Podcast will uncover the hidden stories of ancient artifacts and their journeys in the illicit antiquities trade. Kontes hopes to educate the public on the issue of ownership of ancient artifacts and to spark conversation about how best to preserve world cultures.
“I want to tell the stories of these objects, the stories give these objects a meaning and a history and a significance that you might not get from just looking at them.”
