 The United States has returned about 3800 pieces of smuggled artifacts to the Iraqi government.


Among these cultural relics, there are slime boards of the Sumerian cuneiform in 2100 BC, clay seals in the late second Century B.C., and a clay seal on the inscription of the Royal inscriptions on the engraved imperial inscriptions that can be traced back to the middle of 3000 B.C. According to US media reports, these relics will eventually be collected, researched and displayed by Iraqi National Museum in Baghdad, Iraq. A court document published by the US Department of justice website shows that American Art and crafts chain stores are well to come to buy a large number of Iraqi artifacts in the Middle East in 2010 by a company of $1 million 600 thousand. Although there are many signs that these artifacts may have plundered from Iraqi archaeological sites, it is necessary for the company to ignore these warning signals in the course of the acquisition. Many Iraqi artifacts were packaged and shipped, and they were labeled tile samples to enter the United States by sea. In July 2017, the company agreed to take over the illegal acquisition of Iraqi cultural relics and to pay $3 million in civil litigation costs, and agreed to receive any legacy, or know the whereabouts of these relics, to inform the federal government of the United States. US media reported that the company had acquired over 5500 Iraqi artifacts and had returned over 1200 pieces.
