I'm sure they are worried about theft or vandalism.

Really it is only in the last 50 years that people have begun to worry about the pilfering of archaeological sites. Sadly, I suspect that a lot of that concern began because of the fraudulent "antiquities" that flooded the market.
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

I don't altogether agree, at one time pilfering from archaeological sites was considered the "perk" of being a colonial power. If you had asked an Australian anthropologist/archaeologist if he was entitled to loot Koorie sites - loud laughter would have been the response
