Abstract (in English)

No current monument issue evokes more impassioned discussion than their location. Modern conservation tenets require that antiquities be left in situ wherever possible. Yet modern technology blurs distinctions between movable and immovable artifacts and makes the removal even of major monuments increasingly common. Virtually no antiquity rests wholly secure against potential uprooting.
