The Virtual Museum of Iraq

Six years after the invasion (and subsequent liberation) of Iraq, the country is still too dangerous for normal tourism. This is too bad since Iraq is literally a treasure trove of archaeological artifacts.

To accommodate armchair tourists too timid to risk life and limbs, the Italian government funded the creation of The Virtual Museum of Iraq, showcasing pieces dating from the Sumerian, Babylonian, Assyrian eras and more.

I think that this is a good idea to reach people and get the word out that Iraq has a rich history with many different time periods influencing its customs.

I was just thinking about this the other day. There really is a rich history to Iraq. Maybe someday? I'm being hopeful.
