Welcome to Culture Crime News, a (now stagnant) database of antiquities and art crime articles from the popular press.
Sadly the database is no-longer maintained, but what you have here is an archive of several years of media features on art and cultural heritage crime. Use it for what you will.
Could Culture Crime News come back to life? Maybe, but that would mean some sort of funding for help with the site. Unlikely. This was a solo, unfunded side project and I now just don’t have time for it. Alas!
