Hello, I have read this, all near my city:
Discovering ancient Roman settlement, dating to the period of Augustus.
In the work of consolidation, was discovered this settlement. Closing of the workspace. They expect the excavation work. A year has passed, still no action excavation. (we can find some gladius, even if I try a spathion, joke Laughing Out Loud )

John Sisto in Chicago had a library of about 70,000 ancient books: Agents of Cultural Heritage Protection Department in collaboration with the FBI. Variety treasures stolen in Italy for a value of about 4 million .
348 scrolls dating from the twelfth century onwards. Found an old spear. The problem now is to catalog and display in museums, these works of art.

3 days ago a friend of mine tells me of the older blades were found in the campaign. Perhaps the rain, has opened a hole near the farmhouse in the countryside. Tells me that to have no problems have reburied their swords. Reason? If you like Agents of Cultural Heritage Protection Department, closing the area for excavation. The problem is knowing when to end. We who do? The answer.

In Italy the situation is dramatic for the protection of our heritage. I spoke with the director of the museum in my city. This is his explanation: Italy is among the countries that have the greatest amount of works of art. Restore, catalog, display, has a very high cost for the quantity of works, an admission ticket, when there is not enough.
So in another museum that there are twenty mail, are a dusty deposit. Response, we exposed one, all others are equal.
There are many swords are not exhibited in our museums.
In London, I spent a lot of money to go to visit places of art, apart British Museum, in Paris too.
There is only one answer, too many works of art = too many expenses.
How is the situation in other countries?
I apologize for the long post.

The John Sisto case was interesting. It took place very near my home. I think there is still a lot of uncertainty about how he aquired his treasures....

It seems that some persons engaged in the archives of museums stole these works.
In my area, are built sofas, seems to be a great way to hide stuff, even swords.
Many sofas, departing had a high historical value ... Mad
