Ben Macintyre on the Rosetta Stone

Ben Macintyre comments today in the Times on the saga of the Rosetta Stone's disputed ownership:

Instead of debating ownership and trying to impose modern notions of political sovereignty on ancient cultural patrimony, the argument should be about how to bring the world’s cultural riches to the widest possible audience, regardless of where they physically reside.

Happy to observe we are in agreement over yesterday's post!
