Cultural depredation is has been going on since, well, since culture began. If it's emblematic of power, your conqueror will take it, or destroy it. If it identifies status or is worth money, someone will want it. Be it a matter of war or organized (or disorganized) crime, the trafficking of art and artifacts happens as much, if not more than, that of drugs and guns. Headliners is this Thursday (04/03) and delves into the tradition and tragedy of cultural property depredation. Join us: http://z.umn.edu/hlapril3
