Antiquarium is an antiquities trade intelligence database

Founder Jason Felch and lead developer Miles Zimmerman are preparing to reveal an antiquities trade intelligence database, Antiquarium (née WikiLoot). Citizens will help to collect the data and experts will curate it. Together, they’ll mine and analyse decades of data on repatriated antiquities and from other legal, professional, business and media records.

And they’ll answer key questions on the illicit trade. How big is it? How does it work? How are illicit goods smuggled? How can ethical buyers or receivers of cultural objects avoid looted and counterfeited goods? If you’re interested, introduce yourself to them via info@antiquarium.io
