Acquiring Fossils: A Complex Picture?

journal contribution
posted on 27.06.2019, 13:52 by Janet Ulph
This article explains why museums should avoid acquiring fossils which lack sufficient provenance and where the circumstances are suspicious. It argues that, regardless of whether one considers fossils to be cultural property or not, the Museums Association's Code of Ethics should be followed not only in order to maintain public trust in museums but also to ensure compliance with current laws.
