Apologies to all my subscribers who do not care about Open Access or antiquities buying for filling up your RSS and email with this post.
This is just to say that the ACCG has been quite reasonable after I explained that their first press release regarding the AIA and Open Access misrepresented Open Access Archaeology and confused the issue with importing coins. They have re-written a new press release that should be out sometime this week.
I am very happy with their response to the whole issue and the majority of collectors I have been in contact with have been very nice people. I look forward to our conversations about the antiquities trade.
