ICOM Officiel's curator insight, Today, 4:08 AM

The Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs has previously shared on its website two Red Lists: the first, published in September 2013, focuses on Syrian artifacts; the second, produced this year, lists ones from Iraq. Originally created by the International Council of Museums, the lists are available in multiple languages and are meant to help people identify cultural objects at risk of theft and illicit trading. The FBI recommends that buyers consult them thoroughly before making purchases, carefully verifying any object’s provenance and related documents as well.
