Looting has been motivation for some of the major conflicts throughout history. Join art dealer, Ivan Lindsay, as he explores how the Romans pioneered the idea of
‘to the victor the spoils’. Discover how the Romans removed valuables from conquered territories to help pay for the army and then paraded them to humiliate the vanquished – behavior that became a template that lasted some 2,000 years.
