CityViews 5/21/12: Looting Anasazi Antiquities/”Addiction Incorporated”



Segment 1:

Trading in ancient Native American artifacts can be lucrative business, but it’s illegal and can land you in a lot of hot water with the feds, as dozens of Utah residents have found in recent years. Utah author Michael Norman uses trafficking in Anasazi antiquities as a backdrop for his new novel, and on Monday, Norman joins us to talk about looting and prosecution in the antiquities trade.

On Monday, we’ll talk about the harmful effects of tobacco and how to quit.
