Coming Up:

The Last Guard of Honor

Art & Antiquity crime are at number three after drugs & illegal arms, churning up to $4 billion to $6 billion a year.

We have thousands of years of history & the efforts we take to preserve it are zilch! Lack of funds makes it impossible to protect all the archaeological sites. Our laws are confusing. Our bureaucracy is debilitating.

All this has helped illegal trading of ancient artifacts to flourish. Their network runs efficiently through

an artifact-rich country like India.

There are thousands of ancient artifacts scattered all over the country – in the fields, under trees,

and even on the roadside, among weeds & rubble...  and no one cares!
