    Carter was essentially a grave robber, he seriously damaged mummies trying to fit them into boxes to transport. No doubt it cost him a lot of money, in fact it cost him his life, but I don't agree that any money should be paid back, it was spent on personal gain to steal something belonging to somebody else.
    Elgin got X amount [30 odd thousand pound ... ?] , less than 1/2 of what it cost him to acquire them .

      Have you mixed up Nicholas Cage with Nicholas Gage?

      Nicholas Cage is mainly Italian, his uncle is Francis Ford Coppola of Godfather fame.

        Just came to me it was a conversation about Dukakis the Politician and it was said that Cage was related to him.....
