As artifacts travel from the ground to the consumer in the marketplace, recent research has shown that there are multiple stakeholders with competing claims in the legal trade in antiquities. In Israel it is legal to buy and sell artifacts from legally sanctioned dealers, if the collections pre-date the 1978 national ownership law. Not all aspects of this trade are legal, however, and not all participants have an equal voice. The market in Israel is comprised of archaeologists, collectors, customs officials, dealers, government employees, looters, middlemen, museum professionals, and tourists, all expressing a degree of entitlement in the acquisition and disposition of artifacts. Adding to the complexity of the situation is the porous nature of the borders between Israel, Jordan, and the Palestinian Authority as artifacts in the market come from those areas and go out to Europe, the Far East, and the United States. The journey of a Roman coin from the Palestinian countryside to the Upper West side of New York City allows the examination of the various positions in the debate over who owns the past.

Studies of ancient urbanism readily recognize the role of regional and interregional interaction processes in the development and sustenance of urbanism. Although ancient trade and immigration were inherent in the origins of urban society archaeologists have often attributed the rise of origins of urbanism to non-local often foreigner initiatives. Dr. Chap Kusimba of the Field Museum of Natural History will discuss his ongoing archaeological investigations on the rise, sustenance, and demise of ancient cities of East Africa.
