Lost Heritage: Antiquities Stolen from Iraq's Regional Museums
The following publications were designed to aid in the recovery of antiquities stolen from Iraq's regional museums during the insurrection following the Gulf War, 1991. Museums in Amara, Basra, Kufa, Dirwaniya, Suleimaniya, Dohuk, Kirkuk and Wasit were vandalized, cases were smashed, and records were scattered. The antiquities published here are stolen goods, are not legally held, and can be recovered by police action. Anyone who encounters any of the objects published in Lost Heritage, or any other items that are recognizable as from Iraq's museums, should contact the appropriate authorities.
