The World
The museums of New York, Paris and London are filled with treasures from Egypt, Italy, Turkey and Greece. And museum directors in those countries are no longer content to sit back and allow their own ancient treasures to take up permanent residence in museums of other nations. The Takeaway is joined by Sharon Waxman, author of the book, ?Loot: The Battle over the Stolen Treasures of the Ancient World ?
