On Sakhalin black diggers the grave-robbing the Ainu

“I was silent but now I say right. Today we are dealing with rampant illegal pseudoarchaeologists excavations. The so-called search engines are removed historical objects without inventory and undocumented findings become waste. After all, not valuable in themselves, the finds and the information they carry. Fans are not averse to get into Ainu burial grounds, are removed from burials of the bronze guard (plate to protect the hand of the fencer), and the bones put back. Next throw broken pottery.
