Welcome to Culture Crime News, a growing database of antiquities and art crime articles from the popular press.

This site is very much a work in progress; for more on our motivations, see the about page. Before we go too far towards designing various features, we want to hear about what you need, how you use the information, and what obstacles you run into. No promises, but we will take your comments into account as we develop this site. Get in touch on twitter or via email and let us know what you think.
