What We Discuss with Roger Atwood:
How abhorrent colonial looting practices of the past pale in comparison
to the streamlined, market-driven illicit antiquities trading of today.
Contrary to popular depiction,
illicit antiquities traders aren't marginalized hustlers scrambling to put food on the table
, but savvy businesspeople following the demand that leads to a hefty payday.
How well-connected and wealthy collectors perpetuate this market
by requesting and purchasing relics on demand in the same way most of us would order pizza.
Why this on-demand artifact mill irrevocably destroys more than it rescues from the unknown past
and ruins sites beyond the context of legitimate archaeological salvageability.
On a positive note:
what can be done to stem the tide for this wasteful demand
