    1. by an illustrious U.S. museum.

      Introduction of the episode (Around 1:36 specifically) emphasizes several of the points we were discussing last week -the vital importance of context, how looting interferes with the process of learning from the artifacts and specifically the role of the museum in that mystification. I'm definitely interested in looking closer at the museum's contributions to the harm done by looters -after all, who would steal the artifacts without fashion or nationalism to demand them?
