Rescue workers removed the body this week of a man who died in a deep cave trying to raid an ancient tomb in search of treasure. Archaeologist Boaz Zissu, a professor of Archaeology at Bar Ilan University with a rich history in working to prevent the theft of antiquities, said that many tomb raiders in the Holy Land are motivated by a quest for gold. He said that the treasure hunters cause irreparable damage to the country’s heritage. He told reporter Arieh O’Sullivan that the current Coronavirus pandemic was boosting the pillaging of ancient sites as the robbers believe authorities were off their guard or that law enforcement had more important crimes to pursue.
