Write a 3 page (minimum) essay discussing the issues of excavation and rightful owner of works of art that are discovered. Include your opinion on whether the original discovery were simply discovery or theft AND share your thoughts on whether or not the works from antiquity should be returned to their country of origin. Consider the problems that may arise for works of art currently “owned” by museums or private collectors that have poorly documented ownership over the years. Use 1 – 2 examples from the provided readings to support your arguments.

Include a separate cover sheet with your NAME, DATE and ASSIGNMENT TITLE and a separate reference page properly citing your sources. See below for correct APA formatting for the web links provided for this assignment as well as our textbook. You may use additional resources, and if you do, please include them as well.

Before submitting, your paper must be run through Turnitin (link is provided). Any similarity match over 10% requires you to rewrite the areas that have been identified. Paper submitted with 10% match or higher that have not been corrected will be rejected. I am more interested in what you have to say so please use proper quotations and in-text citations (per APA formatting rules) and include ALL sources on your separate reference page. This way, you properly credit your sources while providing your OWN words, thoughts and opinions.
