January 4, 2008, Newsletter Issue #97: Looting Of Archaeological Artifacts

Tip of the Week

Looting of artifacts from archaeological digs is a serious problem all over the world. In fact, the size of the illegal antiquities market is even larger than the illegal drug trade.

Many countries have learned how to turn their archaeology into tourist attractions, bringing badly-needed money to locals who would otherwise be tempted to loot and sell their own heritage.

Some of the best archaeological sites now even employ former looters as tour guides. Enjoy the archeology of Mayan Ruins at The Inn at Robertīs Grove at Placencia, Belize.
