The nasty trade of WWI grave robbery is growing as centenary approaches


The detestable act of uncovering a grave to steal relics or personal souvenirs is called tomb raiding or grave robbery. The stolen artifacts are sold on the black market by the grave robbers. Questionable shady deals of military artifacts with historical interests are nothing new, but the demand of the nasty trade increased and lurking beneath the world-wide-web we use every day. Both political activists and rogues made the underground internet black market known as Darknet their home.
