Swashbuckling Defenders Of Peru's Artistic Treasures Stake Out The Post Office
"Gladiz Collatupa, an archaeologist, once stashed six mummies at her parents' house for safe keeping. That was when she dug for artifacts in the dirt of Peru, rich with the leavings of past cultures like the Inca and the Moche. Now she digs through packages at the post office instead, searching for ancient treasure being smuggled out of the country." The New York Times 06/13/13
