• CHINA: BEIJING: STOLEN TREASURES/ANTIQUITIES

    Mandarin/Nat Foreign plunder and cultural neglect have contributed to the loss of countless national treasures from historical sites and sacred ruins across China. Now, powerful, rich groups of mainland entrepreneurs are joining forces and pooling their resources to try and retrieve those valuable artefacts which are surfacing on the international art market. If famous auction houses can't be persuaded to return the works of art stolen from China, wealthy groups are simply paying whatever it costs to bring home these priceless pieces of history. Tourists pose for pictures and clamber over the ruins at Beijing's Old Summer Palace. The ancient monument was built during the reign of the Manchu Emperor Qianlong.

  • China's Underwater Atlantis "Discovered" | China Uncensored

    The Qiandao Lake in China's Zhejiang Province is home to natural wonder! Qiandao literally means 1000 islands. But what lies underneath is even more mysterious. Deep under these waters is as an ancient submerged city, dating back to the Eastern Han Dynasty (25-200 AD). It was once known as Lion City, named after the 5 Lion Mountain it's nestled under. The 100 feet deep waters have perfectly preserved this city from antiquity. They call it China's Atlantis Rediscovered. Except, rediscovered might not quite be the right word, since it's only been under water for about 50 years and it's only underwater because they flooded it when they built a dam.

    One of the strangest consequences of the Greek crisis: the looting of greek antiquities by a farmer, intending to sell it on the Greek antiquities black market. When the poverty in Greece hits everyone and when the Greek protest in the streets, one farmer decided to save his own head from the Greek austerity by selling antiquities for a few million euros. On May 19, 2010, the Greek government reported a very rare finding of two statues of Greek antiquity. The Kouros statues - both 2700 years old - were found on the land of a Greek farmer who was planning to trade them illegally for tens of millions of euros abroad. Backlight is looking at the mysterious story behind the discovery of the two statues and strikes on a true crime story, a whodunnit in the Greek countryside. Original title: Een...

Mandarin/Nat Foreign plunder and cultural neglect have contributed to the loss of countless national treasures from historical sites and sacred ruins across China. Now, powerful, rich groups of mainland entrepreneurs are joining forces and pooling their resources to try and retrieve those valuable artefacts which are surfacing on the international art market. If famous auction houses can't be persuaded to return the works of art stolen from China, wealthy groups are simply paying whatever it costs to bring home these priceless pieces of history. Tourists pose for pictures and clamber over the ruins at Beijing's Old Summer Palace. The ancient monument was built during the reign of the Manchu Emperor Qianlong. Jesuit missionary friends of the Emperor were commissioned in 1747 to design the Rococo palace, and work as architects for the structure's European-style palaces, surrounded by elaborate fountains and baroque statuary. Europeans became enemies a century later during the Second Opium War. British and French troops burnt the wooden Chinese pavilions and temples, leaving only marble facades, some broken columns and traces of fountains. Many ancient historical relics were looted at this time. Fountains, here rendered in stone and bronze with human forms and heads of animals from the Chinese zodiac- each spouting water for two hours in turn -were removed by enemy soldiers who made off with five of the animal busts. These ruins are all that's left of the palace itself. They attract thousands of visitors each year. So many tourists visit the monument, that efforts are being made to try and limit the number of people allowed to explore the ruins. China is proud of its cultural heritage, and many feel that historical treasures plundered by foreign armies during the Opium Wars should be returned. SOUNDBITE: (Mandarin) "I believe the national treasures should be returned to China. They shouldn't be auctioned." SUPER: Vox Pop, tourist SOUNDBITE: (Mandarin) "Not only should we take them back, it's most important to stop them from being taken out of China again. This is important." SUPER: Vox Pop, tourist Three of those bronze heads - the monkey, ox and tiger - appeared for sale on the international art market last week in Hong Kong when Christie's and Sotheby's placed the items up for auction to the highest bidder. The sales caused widespread consternation among many Hong Kong and mainland Chinese. Scores of demonstrators gathered outside Sotheby's Hong Kong auction house as the relics were being auctioned off inside, and police were called to the scene as scuffles broke out. The protestors said the antiquities belonged to the Chinese people and had been looted by French and British troops in 1860. Stepping in to defend the mainland's position and rescue her stolen national treasures is the China Poly Group, an industrial conglomerate with interests in arms, property and telecommunications. Adding art to its list of interests, the China Poly Group with its strong connection to the People's Liberation Army, has embarked on a purchasing spree to buy back what China has lost to thieves. The group spent over four million U-S dollars in Hong Kong to purchase the three bronze heads which it intends to place in this special Beijing museum filled with looted Chinese bronzes. The Poly Group's mission is defined by a museum curator. SOUND BITE: (Mandarin) "If we only rely on government finances and government protection, it's not realistic. It need more private enterprises and people to join this movement to protect our antiquities. This should be the historical trend."

From the hollowed out rocks of Mada'in Saleh to the BIGGEST Pre-Columbian city in South America; These are 11 Unreal Ancient Sites and Artifacts HEY YOU ! There are more awesome videos being made every week, like and subscribe to World Unearthed so you don't miss a beat ! 11.Mada'in Saleh LOCATION - Saudi Arabia 10.The New World Egg 9.Kaunos LOCATION - Turkey, Anatolia 8. The Maya Calendars 7.Ajanta Caves LOCATION - INDIA, Maharashtra 6.The Mask of Agamemnon 5.Skellig Michael LOCATION - Ireland Quick, what does Star Wars The Force Awakens, and The Witcher game series have in common? Skellig Michael, thats what. Skellig Michael is the larger of two islands off the coast of Ireland, sometime during the 6th to 8th Century AD a monastery was built, and the island became a hermitage. It is believed that no more than 12 people lived on the island at any one point. The island was suffered a Viking attack in 823 , and due to harsh harsh climate change, the island was abandoned in the 12 Century AD. Due to its recent rise in popularity, which will increase even more when scenes from the upcoming Last Jedi movie appear, conservationists believe the influx of visitors will negatively impact local Puffin and Storm Petrel colonies. 4.Panagyurishte Treasure Panagyurishte is a small town that has many ancient ties, located Bulgaria, the the town became famous for the immense Thracian treasure found there. You might have heard of one of the most famous Thracians - I’m SPARTACUS (such a great scene ) Back to the treasure, it is believed to have been used as a ceremonial set by Thracian kings, the total weight of all the objects is 13.5 lb (6.164kg) of 24 Karat Gold. If you had to put a price on the gold alone, it is worth $237,125 today. Many scholars consider this the best Thracian treasure ever found and people have commissioned a few exact replicas of it, some speculate that the original treasure which sits in a Museum in Sofia, is actually a replica itself. 3.Chan Chan LOCATION - Peru, Andes Mnts. You may have never heard of this place before, but it is the largest pre-Columbian era city in South America ! It served as the capital of the Chimor Empire, who were later taken over by the Inca Empire. Chan Chan translates to “Sun Sun”, it got its name from the incredible sunny climate in the area. The city was founded sometime around 850 A.D. and grew to an estimated 60,000 people in 1300 A.D. After the Inca take over Chan Chan fell into an economic decline, but that did not stop the Spaniards from looting an estimated 80,000 pesos (or $5 million in today's money) worth of gold from it. The city fell into complete obscurity and was abandoned, well only until 1969 when archaeologists began excavations at the site. Nowadays, the city is World Heritage Site and the grandiosity of it still inspires many explorers and adventurers. 2.Celtic Tomb In March of 2015, a team from the National Archaeological Research Institute started excavating a site in France, what they found was astonishing ! A burial chamber for a Celtic Prince was unearthed, filled with Greek Iron Age artifacts, Denis Gliksman managed to capture photos of the most prominent ones. We are looking at a wine cauldron with a sculpture of the Greek God Acheloos on it. The original god of all water ! Sadly, he got demoted to just a normal river god during the hellenistic period. These artifacts shed a new light on Iron Age trade 1.Terracotta Army LOCATION - China In 1974, some farmers in China stumbled across one of the most unreal archaeological discoveries ever, the terracotta army. Can you imagine what it was like to find hundreds of statues of soldiers all perfectly lined up? At this point, I would imagine there was an evil ancient curse, that would befall me too if I didn’t get out of there fast enough ! The figures date back to around 210-209 BC, and they are believed to be the protectors of the Emperor in his afterlife, they are made of terracotta, and sport some amazing details. Terracotta stands for “baked earth”, commonly referring to clay-based ceramics. The army is only a small part of the 38 square mile (98 sq.km) necropolis, the tomb of the emperor has actually never been opened due to concerns over preservations of its artifacts.

Conflict in the Middle East and elsewhere has fueled a booming trade in looted antiquities from archaeological sites and museums. Millions of dollars worth of artifacts have disappeared, with some resurfacing for sale in Europe and the United States. The black market trade provided tens of millions of dollars of funding for the Islamic State, one of the largest groups involved in the business. With ISIS nearing defeat, archaeologists are looking for ways to halt the trade in looted artifacts from Syria, Iraq and other conflict zones. On this edition of Global Journalist, we discuss the trade in stolen cultural artifacts. Joining the program: *Mark Altaweel, an archaeologist and professor at University College London. *Michael Danti, an associate professor in the classics department at Colgate University. *Amr al-Azm, a professor of Middle East history and anthropology at Shawnee State University. *Sam Hardy, a specialist in antiquities trafficking at the American University in Rome. Assistant producers: Jiwon Choi, Lexi Churchill, Samantha Lucas Supervising producer: Rachel Foster-Gimbel Visuals editor: Aleissa Bleyl

Scene from the movie "Cloud Atlas" 2012, directed by Tom Tykwer & Wachowski Brothers. More information about the movie: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1371111/ Quote from the David Mitchell's novel: "Dreamt I stood in a china shop so crowded from floor to far-off ceiling with shelves of porcelain antiquities etc. that moving a muscle would cause several to fall and smash to bits. Exactly what happened, but instead of a crashing noise, an august chord rang out, half-cello, half-celeste, D major (?), held for four beats. My wrist knocked a Ming vase affair off its pedestal - E-flat, whole string section, glorious, transcendent, angels wept. Deliberately now, smashed a figurine of an ox for the next note, then a milkmaid, then Saturday's Child —orgy of shrapnel filled the air, divine harmonies my head. Ah, such music!"

Record sales by major auction houses in Asia have been partly fuelled by the patriotic buying of antiquities by Chinese tycoons and state-backed organizations. Buyers from China, a country with almost a million millionaires, have been snapping up Chinese art and artefacts, reflecting their growing wealth and increasingly sophisticated tastes.

Watch more and discuss: http://greenwich.itsrelevant.com/content/17756/chinese-antiquities-donated-to-the-bruce-museum In one of the largest donations of art in recent years, Fred and Jane Brooks of Greenwich have donated six Tang Dynasty ceramics to the Bruce Museum. "The Bruce has had the benefit of being owned by the people in town but really hasn't attracted people from far and wide," said Fred Brooks, donor of the collection. "It's our hope that this will be the instigation for other people, not only collectors of Chinese antiquities who could augment our collection and help it grow into other periods, but to make The Bruce a destination." A destination well worth the trip. The donated works all date from the Tang Dynasty (618-907 A.D.), which is regarded as one of the greatest periods of artistic creativity in China. "There are two types, one is multi-colored glaze, or tricolor glaze, as well as painted pieces," explained Brooks. "There is no rhyme or reason why one piece would be done the other way and some were painted and glazed. The pieces were created for decoration in the homes of the nobility but also as funereal figures, they were buried when the emperor died and were regarded to be utilitarian to be used in the after life." The gift and the promise of additional donations from the collection will help establish the Bruce Museum as an important center for the study of Chinese antiquities. "The museum will end up with one of the best collections of Chinese antiquities in the country and enhance the prestige of the museum and the museum enhances the prestige of the Town and of our collection." The collection will be on display through April 11th. Produced By: Sarah Michler

One of the strangest consequences of the Greek crisis: the looting of greek antiquities by a farmer, intending to sell it on the Greek antiquities black market. When the poverty in Greece hits everyone and when the Greek protest in the streets, one farmer decided to save his own head from the Greek austerity by selling antiquities for a few million euros. On May 19, 2010, the Greek government reported a very rare finding of two statues of Greek antiquity. The Kouros statues - both 2700 years old - were found on the land of a Greek farmer who was planning to trade them illegally for tens of millions of euros abroad. Backlight is looking at the mysterious story behind the discovery of the two statues and strikes on a true crime story, a whodunnit in the Greek countryside. Original title: Een Griekse tragedie Greece is one of the first European countries that came into serious trouble when the financial and economic crisis broke out in 2008. Last autumn, the Greek budget deficit turned out twice as high as the Greek government had previously predicted to the EU. The IMF and the World Bank came in return for support with a package of emergency measures that the Greek government had to implement. A threatening bankruptcy has been turned off for the time being, but the Greeks will have to lead a severe austerity politic in order to get the country back on track. The anger grows amongst the population, and the streets are filling up with protesters more and more each day. What does it mean for a population if their country is threatening to go bankrupt and what impact does the cuts policy have on the daily lives of the Greeks? In contrast, the portrait of a village in crisis with in the leading role the farmer Kostas, who has already started selling Greece in order to keep his head above water.

Subscribe here: https://www.youtube.com/c/VicStefanu - Let's go to the world famous Museum of Fine Arts in Boston (MAssachusetts) in the USA and let's visit the wing with the Egyptian antiquities. Here, we are going to view wood carvings of servants, discovered (in 1905) in a tomb from around 2,000BC. Egyptian tombs sometimes contained small figures showing people engaged in ordinary, domestic tasks such as baking, weaving, brewing and so forth. Such statues, known as serving statues, were included in the tomb to ensure that the deceased would enjoy the benefits of the products and services represented. We are also going to view Egyptian funerary boats on display. The boats symbolize the transport of the dead person or their soul, from life to the afterlife. Egyptians saw death as a boat journey, a trip across their River Nile, which ran down the centre of their country, joining North and South, country and city. Vic Stefanu, vstefanu@yahoo.com.
