Iraq's stolen art problem
By HEATHER A. DAVIS


One of the recently found Iraqi seals.
ARCHAEOLOGY/Penn Museum raises awareness of looted Iraqi artifacts that turned up in U.S.

The eight Iraqi seals currently on display at the Penn Museum are small enough to fit easily in the palm of your handundefineda fact that makes them easily transportable, highly collectable and extremely valuable as looted objects. And that’s just what they are.
