Volume Editor:
What can you learn about the impact of war on archaeology and museums in past conflicts such as World War II? What was the role of state authorities in protecting antiquities in some European contexts? This volume assesses a variety of targeted, vital case studies providing genuine and fresh data (even unpublished pictures and archival records).

For instance, contributions detail on the military requisition of the National Museum of Naples, the burial of artefacts in the National Museum of Athens basement, a little-known military excavation in Milazzo (Sicily), 'wararchaeology' of Crete and the rescue of war remains in Finnish Lapland.
