We must act now or there won’t be a past left to protect. Luckily, for a fraction of the auction price of a single antiquity, we have a chance to save much of what remains of our entire civilization. But we can’t do it without you.

The practice of plunder is as ancient as the sites under attack. But as the cost of antiquities continues to skyrocket, organized criminals, armed insurgents, and terrorist networks are now turning to cultural racketeering. With each artifact looted from an archaeological site, and then sold onto the black market, they alone profit.

The rest of us lose a piece of history forever.
