  • Vandalized Iraqi Museum

    Just after SH fell, the Iraqi Museum was robbed. Hundreds of priceless ancient artifacts stolen. Has there been any development in what happened to those pieces?

    Actually, the last I heard was that once they'd done a proper inventory, there weren't as many pieces missing as they first thought.

    Initial estimates of the looting indicated that over 150,000 items had been taken. This was wildly innaccurate.

    Figures I read in November suggested that all but 10,000 had been recovered. Some pieces turned up in London - and I even heard a story that a US news anchor had been caught trying to smuggle an artifact out in his luggage?!

    Imagine a ball of iron, the size of the sun. And once a year a tiny sparrow brushes its surface with the tip of its wing. And when that ball of iron, the size of the sun, is worn away to nothing, your punishment will barely have begun.

      Most of them were, in fact, not destroyed or stolen, but hidden away by the museum curator.
