Description

Crime Culture News: A Database of Antiquities and Art Crime is a tagged, searchable archive of reports of theft of cultural heritage and art from around the world. It intends to be open data and collaborative, although it contains only titles and metadata of the news reports, not full text articles, for copyright reasons. It began as the data for archaeology and criminology research by Dr Donna Yates in Glasgow, and is now conceived as a public resource for research into art crime. The database, search and collaborative features are under active development.
