Human Trafficking Route Looks Like Antiquities Path to European Markets

The story of fifty "migrants" (no, let's call them what they are - refugees) found dead in a lorry in Austria is accompanied by a map.

It strikes me that this is very much like a map of the movement of antiquities into Europe from the Middle East (through Turkey and Bulgaria on to Austria and SE Germany) which I'd written about a few years ago for the HAPPAH volume. The knowing participants in the market for antiquities smuggled across international borders by criminals should be ashamed of themselves. What other illegal activities are their friends the smugglers involved in?
