For me, this was a completely different subject area - and isn't this one of the great benefits of MOOCs - that we can taste the unknown, presented in structured ways by knowledgeable people?
It was engaging, with some remarkable images (one before and after looters image was particularly memorable). For me, it gave me some basic history, as well as an understanding of how business happens in the art and antiquities worlds, and just how crime happens.
It covered different categories, times, and geographical regions, which meant that the material was wide ranging, and at times felt a little light, but provided enough referenced material to be able to head off to read more when I wanted to.
If you are into geopolitics, anthropology, or just plan art, this is a great backgrounder course. If you are like me, inartistic and blind to that half of the world, this is an eye opener.
