Today, there is a large and growing trade in antiquities; they can be bought and sold in most countries of the world. Many end up in the museums and private collections of North America, Europe and Japan. Unfortunately, demand for antiquities far outstrips supply, and there are not enough in circulation to satisfy the market. As a result, archaeological sites and monuments have become targets for thieves and vandals, and museums are burgled.
