Post Washington Redskins Hats
While Iraq is known to many giant corporations as one of the world’s greatest resources for oil Washington Redskins Hats , smugglers know this Middle Eastern country better for its abundance of valuable ancient artifacts.


Iraq has a rich history — including Sumerian civilization existing more than five years ago – which entails the remains of numerous relics that many collectors are willing to pay hefty amounts for.


News on the existence of these rare items has spread like wildfire, especially in the criminal underworld, ever since the 2003 US invasion of Iraq. Despite the fact that this “business'” boom took place nine years ago, criminals still actively engage this trade today. According to a recent report by al-Zaman news, Iraqi police arrested two smugglers for smuggling scores of artifacts at the southern Province of Dhiqar.


Amongst the two thieves’ stolen loot were rare statues, as well as invaluable coins dating back to various eras in Iraq’s history. Upon investigating and questioning the two crooks Washington Redskins T-Shirts , police were able to determine that both have long been engaged in this industry of stealing and selling precious relics.


Moreover, there have been several recent confiscations of such goods over the past few years. “Interior Ministry forces in coordination with the Iraqi army seized 64 archaeological pieces as well as 114 bronze coins in a district of al-Fajir,” said a member of the police force, who didn’t want to be named.


Seeing an abundance of priceless objects from the past – whether confiscated or within their designated mounds – is not surprising, especially in Dhiqar. This province holds some of the most archeologically significant excavation mounds in all of Iraq.




“Tell Chokha” is one site that’s in danger of getting ruined by illegal diggers. What makes this excavation spot in so attractive to thieves is its massive size of nearly eight square kilometers. In addition, it’s a known fact that various cities and settlements from the Sumerian era are buried here.


Many Sumerian artifacts are small (making them easy to transport), but hold great value – some collectors are willing to pay $100,000 and beyond just to get their hands on a small cylinder seal containing precious stone.
