Since 2002, Danish archaeologists have been involved in the recontextualization of a notable number of archaeological objects illegally excavated from the site during the 1970s and repatriated to Italy between 2002 and 2016. Through systematic excavations, is has been the aim to determine the original find spot for most of the repatriated objects thereby redeeming a substantial part of the scientific information lost during the 1970s’ illegal excavations. In 2023 the Danish Institute will curate a temporary exhibition in the Museo Nazionale Archeologico della Sibaritide which for the first time will bring the story of the successful recontextualization of the thousands of illegal excavated to the knowledge of a broad public audience.
