Sam Hardy writes on "Tomb raiders and the profits of doom" discussd here earlier:
Lask week, the World Today published an article on the conflict antiquities trade by me and Sasan Aghlani (@Aghlani), a Research Assistant in International Security at Chatham House and PhD student in Politics and International Studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS). He’s written elsewhere on the role of violence against religious property in conflict (the power of sacred geography in Iraq). Apart from giving it the superlative title, the World Today has kindly given us permission to share the fully-sourced text here. (Sources were provided for fact-checking during editing, but not published in the magazine.)So here is the text with its hyperlinks, the lack of which is perhaps the only reason why the text is not being referenced on the collectors' blogs.
