Gold and Secrets of the Black Sea

The Crimea - Gold and Secrets of the Black Sea is at the Allard Pierson historical museum in Amsterdam. Rare archaeological finds are still caught in the middle as both the Ukrainian government and Crimean museums claim ownership. The exhibition included items from four museums in Crimea and one museum in Kiev. In August 2014, the museum returned the artifacts it borrowed from the National Museum of History of Ukraine. It still retains 572 disputed items.
For now, the artifacts are in the legal care of the Allard Pierson Museum, which will keep hold of them until all appeals are settled.
