    Hmm yes and no. I'd not like to see all those treasures lost forever but in the other, I'm not really fond of Antiquities trade. For instance, I don't want foreigner private collectors to steal our heritage. They'd better be natives instead. Or better, I think Museums are one fo the best way to help preserving our roots.

    What I do know, is that I won't ever sell some national artifacts (if I found any) to a wealthy Japenese or a Saudi or whatelse. It gets on my nerve when I see castles dismounted and send to America or Japan (it's already happen) or paintings, etc. I'd react the same way with artifacts. It equates plundering to me.


    (If I were a collector, I'd not wear old bracelets or any other artifacts, as they belonged to someone else in the old time, it'd be an offence.)

    I do weightlifting and I have a small hooligan experience.
    BTW, I did not mean just physical strength...

    The important thing about antiquities is that people get to see them and know about them and understand what they are, where they come from and who used them originally. Or in the case of bones, to whom they originally belonged, including the racial type and culture and place in the world. It all adds to knowledge and it doesn't always matter much who owns what as long as they are willing to let us all know about them and see them one way or another from time to time.

    National galleries are good because they get to put these things on show to many people and they are able to maintain the relics. But I think grabbing relics from other cultures and getting the tourism value from these is now becoming a sore point with many countries. They want their stuff back, which is good in a way because it means they are becoming more conscious of who they were and as soon as people do that they become by default conscious of they are and when that happens they stand still and look stunned and start saying "hang on a minute, ".

    I'm afraid that many times you don't make much sense in Greek either.
