Raids in Israel uncover ‘gargantuan’ trove of stolen artifacts

Thousands of stolen archaeological artifacts — including gold coins, bronze statues and Egyptian sarcophagi — have been recovered in Israel, thanks to a coordinated set of raids. 

The artifacts aren’t just from sites in ancient Israel; they come from across the Mediterranean, the Middle East, Africa and even South America. So far, investigators haven’t even quantified everything they’ve recovered.
