Stealing History by Roger Atwood

Book Description

Roger Atwood knows more about the market for ancient objects than almost anyone. He knows where priceless antiquities are buried, who is digging them up, and who is fencing and buying them. In this fascinating book, Atwood takes readers on a journey through Iraq, Peru, Hong Kong, and across America, showing how the worldwide antiquities trade is destroying what's left of ancient sites before archaeologists can reach them. Part detective story and part meditation on the power of art and culture, "Stealing History" is an essential account of how the past is being dug out from under us.
