Thoughts on ancient artefacts, their collection and ethical issues

Lesson from Croatia
Zagreb is located in a zone of high seismic activity and a 5.3 magnitude earthquake struck a wide area around the city on Sunday, 22 March. Fortunately, there were few human casualties but the earthquake caused some heartbreaking damage to its cathedral and museums.
Moral: If you live in a known earthquake zone, make sure any antiquities in a display case are securely mounted.
