Art into archaeology 

The outstanding modern British art collection amassed by the London solicitor Wilfrid Evil that formed part of the estate of the late Honor Frost has been sold at auction for £36.9 million. The proceeds of the sale will be used by the UK registered Honor Frost Charitable Trust to fund marine archaeological research and publication. 

Those archaeologists hoping that the funds will provide a major boost to the study of maritime archaeology in UK waters may be disappointed.  Whilst wider application is not ruled out, the charitable objects and area of benefit of the charity as described on the Charity Commission’s website makes it clear that the principle focus of its charitable activities will be work in or concerning the eastern Mediterranean.
