The March edition of the Video News from TAC, online and on TV
Friends and colleagues: The latest installment of the Video News from The Archaeology Channel features the following stories:
* During his stay on the island from 1865 until 1876, the American consul in Cyprus, Luigi Cesnola, became an amateur archaeologist to profit from the trade of antiquities. He gathered up more than 35,000 objects. When local authorities prohibited the export of this enormous collection, Cesnola loaded his treasures onto boats and shipped them to New York.
* Lisa Westwood launches our preview series for The Archaeology Channel International Film and Video Festival (7-11 May 2013, Eugene, Oregon) with nine short clips.
You can see these stories in the March 2013 edition of this monthly half-hour show, available now on our nonprofit streaming-media Web site, The Archaeology Channel (http://www.archaeologychannel.org) as well as on cable TV in cities across the US.
Launched in October 2010, the Video News from TAC has presented 65 stories on highly varied topics in 12 US states, 23 other countries, and two heavenly bodies (the Earth and the Moon).
