Really it is only in the last 50 years that people have begun to worry about the pilfering of archaeological sites. Sadly, I suspect that a lot of that concern began because of the fraudulent "antiquities" that flooded the market.

I don't altogether agree, at one time pilfering from archaeological sites was considered the "perk" of being a colonial power. If you had asked an Australian anthropologist/archaeologist if he was entitled to loot Koorie sites - loud laughter would have been the response
