Archeologists Suggest to Forbid E-Commerce Sales of Relics in Russia

For counteraction to the so-called "black archeologists" who plunder archaeological monuments for the purpose of selling relics on the antique market, it is necessary to impose ban on trade in archaeological values on the Internet, Director of Archeology Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences Nikolay Makarov suggested.
      He reminded that all archaeological artifacts, including movable ones, are state property according to the Russian legislation.
      "But they are freely available for sale in antique shops and at auctions on the Internet. The majority of European countries that also face the problem of illegal excavation, managed to cut down their scope essentially by banning E-commerce sales of archeological antiquities", - Mr. Makarov emphasized.
