Trying to Do the Right Thing to Protect the World’s Cultural Heritage: One Committee Member’s Tale

This is a personal account of the author’s service as a member of President Obama’s Cultural Property Advisory Committee. It reflects upon the purpose of the committee, its composition and the nature of its work, as well as the wider impact of the United States government’s efforts to contribute to cultural-heritage preservation worldwide. Lothar von Falkenhausen’s area of expertise is the archaeology of ancient China.
