FACEBOOK’S BLACK MARKET IN ANTIQUITIES

FACEBOOK’S BLACK MARKET IN ANTIQUITIES
AMR AL-AZM, KATIE A. PAUL WITH CONTRIBUTIONS BY SHAWN GRAHAM
JUNE 2019
Facebook’s “Groups” feature, which allows users to create and control a contained network of individuals with “shared interests,” has become a facilitator for the expansion of antiquities trafficking networks. The Groups provide a seamless environment for digital interactions and cross-border networking between users interested in buying and selling antiquities, allowing them to communicate efficiently and discretely. The ATHAR Project’s report covers nearly two-years of investigative research and incorporates a case study on Groups based in Syria.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Facebook’s rapid growth and lack of internal policing mechanisms over the past decade have helped the platform become a digital black market where users buy and sell goods, including illicit antiquities, from some of the world’s most conflict-ridden nations. The social media platform has marketed itself as a tool for the global dissemination of ideas and information. In the process, however, it has unwittingly expanded the communication abilities of transnational criminal networks the world over.

Today, Facebook offers a veritable digital toolbox for traffickers to utilize, including photo and video uploads, live streaming, disappearing ‘Stories,’ payment mechanisms, and encrypted messaging. Facebook is the perfect platform for a one-stop-shop black market.

This in turn has made Facebook the wild west of social media, providing opportunities for violent extremist organizations and criminal groups to operate in plain sight with little recourse. Facebook and other technology companies receive broad immunity from responsibility for any content posted to their platforms by third-parties under the 1996 Communications Decency Act Section 230.

Aside from the law, Facebook does have its own internal policies laid out in the company’s Community Standards that prohibit the sale of black-market items like drugs and wildlife. But illicit cultural property is not listed in the banned trades under Facebook’s Community Standards. As a result, today we can find detailed information about antiquities trafficking that has remained active on the platform for years. This data provides a rare look at the inside of the trade.

It is worth noting that unlike other black market trades, there are few statistics on the trade in illicit antiquities. Likewise, little data is available for the legal global trade in antiquities. Art market industry reports typically lump datasets for antiquities together with the broader art market. For a trade that can straddle the legal and illegal realm, it is difficult to get a handle on the amount of cultural property that is currently leaving Middle East and North African (MENA) countries in high volumes.

The public nature of these digital criminal networks therefore offers an opportunity to track the actors in the illicit trade of cultural property. The data in these Facebook Groups opens a window to the early stages of the antiquities trafficking chain. This research builds upon existing knowledge of antiquities trafficking and provides a quantitative lens to analyze the Facebook trade in illicit antiquities and the actors who engage in these crimes. Studying Facebook Groups and the users that communicate and operate within them allows for both a substantive look at the actors and a measurable set of data that can help foster a better understanding of the transnational criminal networks involved in this trade.

This report details the findings of the Antiquities Trafficking and Heritage Anthropology Research (ATHAR) Project. The goal of this research is to provide a more complete illustration of the digital black market in antiquities from the MENA region and present potential means for disrupting it.

KEY FINDINGS

An analysis of 95 Arabic Facebook Groups developed for antiquities trafficking indicates that the administrators (“admins”) managing Groups are highly interconnected and have a global reach. There are 488 individual admins managing a collective 1,947,195 members across 95 Facebook Groups. Twenty-three of the admins managing four or more Groups. Their influence extends as far as the United States, where an American antiquities dealer is Facebook friends with at least one admin who runs multiple trafficking Groups and Pages on Facebook.

Group members include a mix of average citizens, middlemen, and violent extremists. Violent extremists currently include individuals associated with Syrian-based groups like Hay’at Tahrir Al Sham (HTS), Hurras Al-Din, the Zinki Brigade and other non-Syrian based Al-Qaeda or Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) affiliates. All of these groups are using Facebook as a platform for antiquities trafficking, whether through direct interaction with buyers and sellers or through the use of middlemen who straddle transactions between the general public and terrorist groups.

Facebook Group admins compel users to give them money if they make a sale or connection through the Group they have joined. Admins may collect a fee (referred to by some as “khums tax” or equivalent) from any sales generated through contacts made in their Group. The admins can also remove or block users who do not comply. The same khums tax practice was used by ISIS in its governance of illicit antiquities.

Traffickers are offering large artifacts, including mosaics, architectural elements, and Pharaonic coffins — all still in situ. These individuals are finding buyers before they put in the effort to remove the objects. Monitoring social media offers a rare opportunity for authorities to stop trafficking before an object has even left the ground.

A case study on Syrian-based Facebook Groups reveals that posts from users based in conflict zones make up more than one-third of all posts offering artifacts. Among the active users with locations in the Groups analyzed, 36% of posts offering artifacts have identifiable locations in conflict zones and 44% of posts offering artifacts were from countries bordering conflict zones.

The monograph offers a large number of unpublished text fragments in photo and transliteration and gives succinct philological notes to these fragments. The fragments are part of a large collection that had been found during the early Turkish-German campaigns at the Hittite capital Hattusa before the Second World War. The fragments were taken to the Staatliche Museen in Berlin (which fell to Eastern Germany after the war) and were finally returned by the German Democratic Republic to Turkey (the Museum of Ancient Anatolian Civilizations, Ankara) in the year 1987. They were then divided among a team of eminent Turkish Hittitologists under the supervision of Sedat Alp, but most of the pieces remained unpublished. Following a decision of the Turkish Ministry of Culture in 2010, a new team was formed, partly consisting of members of the former team, but also supplemented by several fine younger Turkish Hittitologists. The authors of the present monograph are among these new team members.

Oğuz Soysal, a Hittitologist, and Başak Yıldız Gülşen, a curator of the Ankara Museum, provide photographs and transliterations of each piece. This is a very felicitous decision. Photos offer the users of his book all the information needed on the sign forms of the fragments, and the transliterations show how the authors have interpreted those signs. Wherever necessary, the authors give philological notes to explain certain forms or to present relevant text variants. Each fragment, if possible, is accompanied by information on its assignment to a Hittite text or text genre, the date of the composition, the fragmentʼs measurements, and previous bibliography.

After the presentation of the fragments highly useful indexes on onomastics and lexicographical matters close the book.

L’étude des répertoires de la céramique italiote frappe par la rareté des scènes de violence. La majeure partie des images illustre des actes rituels, près de la tombe ou dans des lieux pour nous imprécis, comme nous demeurent souvent imprécises, voire incompréhensibles, leurs significations, avec des gestes généralement grandiloquents pour présenter ou offrir des objets ; les personnages dionysiaques eux-mêmes, comme les ménades ou les satyres, rarement agresseurs, courent ou dansent, ensemb...

Welcome to the website of the SNSF Ambizione project "Reuniting fragments, identifying scribes and characterizing scripts: the Digital paleography of Greek and Coptic papyri" (September 2018 – August 2022)
Greek and Coptic papyri preserved in the sands of Egypt are one of our main sources for Classical and early Christian literature. They are also crucial for the field of Ancient History of the Eastern Mediterranean world, as the texts found written in them span from the Hellenistic period to the Middle Ages. The papyri are often incomplete, however, broken accidentally during the course of time or, in more recent periods, intentionally cut to be sold in pieces in the antiquities market. It is precisely because of the fragmentary nature of these irreplaceable texts that palaeography, the study of ancient handwritings, is of great importance to papyrologists. First, palaeography helps to identify the specific handwriting of one individual over several fragments. Secondly, it provides dating arguments in the absence of other criteria, since Greek and Coptic scripts have developed consistently over time.
The present research project aims to lay the foundation for an online interface through which papyrologists would be able to look for similar – or identical – handwritings to a given papyrus and for typical samples of writing for a given period. To reach this ambitious goal, this project will first focus on three distinct and complementary case studies:
  • the papyri which contain Homer’s Iliad, written in Ancient Greek;
  • the richest archive of the Byzantine period which is called the archive of Dioscorus of Aphrodito written in Greek and Coptic (from the 6th c. A.D.);
  • and the archive of Papas, written in Coptic, whose papyri were found broken in a jar and thus represent a real jigsaw puzzle for papyrologists.

Rursus: Poiétique, réception et réécriture des textes antiques
ISSN électronique 1951-669X
http://www.openedition.org/docannexe/image/6443/rursus_160x75.png
La revue numérique Rursus est consacrée à des études portant sur la récriture. Elle a été conçue par les chercheurs de langues anciennes de l’Université de Nice, réunis de 2003 à 2007 dans la jeune équipe LA.LI.A, et est depuis publiée par le CEPAM (UMR 7264). La littérature dite ‘au second degré’ n’est pas une zone érudite, marginale, voire décadente du champ littéraire, mais la clé même de ce champ, puisque le régime original et originel de l’écriture est le second degré. Cette conviction d’une nature foncièrement hypertextuelle de la création n’est pas un dogme mais une attention de fond aux facteurs de mutation, de détournement et de renouvellement de la tradition.
Rursus a cessé sa publication avec le n° 11 de 2017 et se poursuit aujourd’hui avec RursuSpicae.

Ceramics are among the most abundant materials recovered in archaeological sites. Traditionally, they have served as the main staple for archaeologists to establish chronological sequences within sites and cultural affiliations between sites. They are also a primary source for a wealth of information about past economies, social structures and ritual behaviour. In addition, ceramics preserve in their bodies the traces of countless forms of experimentation, knowledge transmission, technical ingenuity and artistic sensitivity, transcending the boundaries between art, craft and science both in their original production, and in their current study. As a sustained area of research, the study of ceramics has historically served as a prime arena for innovation, both through the pioneer application of instrumental analyses and as a core foundation and testing ground for influential archaeological theories. Inevitably, some research methods are well-established in some regions, whereas they are still emerging in others. Also the integration between science-based approaches and archaeological theory is uneven. However, emerging academic traditions, and those in less-resourced regions, should not be overshadowed by the more established paradigms. While it is impossible to keep up with all the work carried out on archaeological ceramics worldwide, it is essential that researchers continue to exchange and compare their methods, results and ideas, and that these are made available to a broader archaeological readership. This book aims to facilitate this exchange and update of information on diverse approaches to archaeological ceramics across much of the world.

Horizon: The Amarna Project and Amarna Trust Newsletter
Amarna Project Home
The ancient Egyptian city of Tell el-Amarna (or simply Amarna) was the short-lived capital built by the ‘heretic’ Pharaoh Akhenaten and abandoned shortly after his death (c. 1332 BCE). It was here that he pursued his vision of a society dedicated to the cult of one god, the power of the sun (the Aten). As well as this historic interest Amarna remains the largest readily accessible living-site from ancient Egypt. It is thus simultaneously the key to a chapter in the history of religious experience and to a fuller understanding of what it was like to be an ancient Egyptian. There is no other site like it.

«Profughi. Tra mito e storia» - La parola, lo sguardo

Scritto da Giusto Picone. Pubblicato in: Dossier
Un gruppo di profughi provenienti dall’Asia Minore approda sulle coste del Lazio. Alle loro spalle una guerra sanguinosa, la gran parte degli uomini e dei bambini massacrati, le donne violentate dai vincitori e ridotte in schiavitù, la città natale data alle fiamme e rasa al suolo. Poi le insidie mortali della navigazione sul Mediterraneo, il naufragio sulle coste dell’Africa settentrionale e infine, per i sopravvissuti, l’approdo sul lido laziale, alla foce del Tevere. Qui l’ostilità delle popolazioni indigene, l’odio crescente per gli invasori stranieri, il proposito di ricacciare in mare i nuovi arrivati.

O mensa! Perché Winston Churchill da studente odiò il latino? Una risposta pedagogica alla luce delle teorie di Krashen

Scritto da Marco Ricucci. Pubblicato in: Ricerca e sperimentazione didattica
L’istruzione classica sta affrontando una crisi mondiale per molteplici cause: mentre il mondo accademico è impegnato a individuare le radici di ciò che di significativo l’antichità può dare alla modernità, i docenti devono trovare approcci innovativi per insegnare latino e greco antico agli studenti adolescenti ai quali le lingue classiche sembrano non piacere più. In questo articolo viene rivisitata, alla luce delle teorie della Second Language Acquisition di Stephen D. Krashen, il resoconto dell’esperienza di apprendimento di Winston Churchill quando imparò il latino da ragazzo.

Ovidio a due voci: Intervista ad Arturo De Vivo e Giuseppe Zollo.
