Gabriel Rodriguez's curator insight, February 21, 2014 10:54 PM

I think it's important to preserve the history of Greece, and the history of the world for that matter.  We shouldn't destroy historical monuments or take over historical land for new age purposes, we should respect that history and leave these locations as they are.

The question is to let the private sector take control of the archeology findings because Greece owes money to other countries. No, because the country can increase there ticket sells to museums, and archeological sites. Greece is so rich in history the government needs to use it to its advantage. Greece does get millions of tourist each year.

I think it very sad that such cultural treasures cannot be maintained either through taxes or on their popularity alone. Although if these are here for the foreseeable future and are available for anyone to see (if they want) then I am okay with this.
