Re: Baghdad National Museum Looted
You may be interested to look at and contribute to, the FORUM section of
Global Museum. http://globalmuseum.myikonboard.com
Just click on the topic link "the war in Iraq"
To quote a Canadian colleague - " I'm worried about the antiquities and
archaeological sites in Iraq. Not only are they in danger from the war, but
afterward, should a fundamentalist Islamic regime take power, they might
have no respect for these remnants of a past that they don't see as theirs."
from a colleague in the Middle East: " Is it really going to be finished
only with Iraq? As a person living in middle east and professionally
involved in conservation of cultural heritage, I should confess that here is
always a shadow of fear of unstable future"
