Jul 2, 2013

Miami University police are searching for those responsible for stealing 10 thousand dollars worth of historic artifacts from a classroom.

Some are more than 4 thousand years old. They include a Neolithic flint dagger from Denmark and several Aztec artifacts. A philanthropist collected the items from the 1920s to 1940s and donated them to the university in 1959. Students used them to learn the methods and techniques of archaeology.
