Human Remains and the Law
Thank you Sarah Howard, who explained the dire situation when it comes to archaeological CPD and limited budgets, so the kind people at The Institute of Art and Law have introduced a discounted rate for their seminar 'Human Remains and the Law' held in the afternoon of 13 December at the Natural History Museum, London.

Now half-price

The programme for next Friday’s seminar at the Natural History Museum. The subject matter is, of course, highly topical not only in light of the continuing discussion about the final resting place for the bones of Richard III, but also following recent case law concerning contractual remedies where human remains are found on a building site. Ethical, moral and legal issues surrounding the retention and/or display of human remains in museums and galleries are also a matter of concern and attention will be given to the law governing such display and to the way in which the repatriation of remains is best handled.

13th December 2013, London:
