What Used to be at the Iraq National Museum

This tour gives a glimpse of some of the artifacts previously on display; it doesn’t even hint at the items from other museums stored for safe keeping during the war, or the thousands of cylinder seals and cuneiform tablets, most of which have not been inventoried. Of course, even if they had been inventoried, it wouldn’t help much since the looters took or destroyed the computers and completely destroyed the card catalog which was the most accurate inventory.
