This Monday, Sept. 15, 2014 photo shows a winged bull made out of limestone displayed at the Iraqi National Museum in Baghdad. Now much of that archaeological wealth is under the control of extremists from the Islamic State group. They have already destroyed some of that heritage in their zealotry to uproot what they see as heresy. Antiquities officials in Iraq and Syria warn of a disaster as the region’s history is erased.
