Human remains in archaeological museums
Ethics & Display
This two-day Conference is the first scientific meeting in Greece, which focuses on the ethics, display and interpretation of human remains, a cultural resource imbued with significant ethical and ideological connotations. Breath-taking archaeological discoveries of the latest decades on the Greek land have given us a good enough reason towards organising this Conference, which aspires to encourage a prolific dialogue on the ethically correct display of this unique material.
Not all of me shall die;
