Ai Khanoum Pillaged. Ai Khanoum, Takhar Province.
We shall never know what has been lost by such clandestine activities. The destruction of sites removes the possibility of reconstructing the history of the objects, of the civilizations from which they came and of the people who made them. Artifacts must be studied in situ so that the dynamics of the culture from which they sprung can be understood. This is no longer possible at Ai Khanoum.
