a very preliminary review of destruction, trafficking and politics of heritage in social media of Russian trolls

troll factories: the Internet Research Agency and state-sponsored agenda building

Identified members of a Russian state-linked propaganda outlet, the Internet Research Agency (IRA), are being prosecuted for participating in ‘a sophisticated and coordinated campaign to sow disinformation and discord into American politics via social media’, ‘interfering in American electoral and political processes’. Journalist Jim Galloway has captured the logic of much of the activity: ‘let’s you and him fight’.

A professor of communication studies, Darren Linvill, and a professor of economics, Patrick Warren, collected 2,973,371 tweets under 2,848 handles that are associated with the IRA. This sample encompassed all of the tweets under 946 handles between 19th June 2015 to 31st December 2017, all of the tweets under 2,752 handles between 10th May 2015 and 31st December 2017, plus some tweets under some handles between February 2012 and May 2018.

They are in the process of publishing an article on troll factories: the Internet Research Agency and state-sponsored agenda building. They have shared their research with data journalist Oliver Roeder at FiveThirtyEight. 538 has archived their database on GitHub. Their work has already been augmented and expanded by citizen science. Searchable webpages have been created by programmer Simon Willison @simonw and computational biologist Fabio Pardi. (I do not yet know why, but more results appear in Willison’s Datasette.)

This is an attempt to document the targets and assess the scale of heritage propaganda by Russian trolls. It finds trolling about illicit trafficking of cultural objects, violent destruction of cultural property, political violence at heritage sites and political exploitation of cultural property from the United States, to Ukraine, to Syria and beyond.

notes

exploitation of innocent sources

Sometimes, trolls retweet propaganda from other trolls. Sometimes, they retweet sincere statements from authentic accounts, such as ‘All those anxious about the #StonehengeTunnel, & looking for a professional archaeologist’s perspective, please do follow @preshitorian’, by historian Tom Holland @holland_tom. So, the presence of an account’s handle and/or content within the trolls’ content does not necessarily indicate any association with the troll factory.

text

If the text appears to be nonsense (such as a string of symbols), it is in a language with a non-Latin script (such as Russian), which has been broken during the conversion of the material (although I have managed to recover Russian-language texts with the Universal Cyrillic Decoder). This has since been fixed by software architect Martijn Pieter.

links

I have deleted all of the links in the (re)tweets that are archived here. They are present in the unedited data, but they may be malicious.

content warning

The trolls’ tweeted content has been designed as propaganda. Others’ retweeted content has been appropriated for propaganda. There is offensive content. For the avoidance of doubt, I reject any and all of the absurd or offensive claims.

method

handiwork

I did the work by hand. I searched each of the files for all of the keywords or their roots, such as “antiq” for “antiques” and “antiquities”, with CTRL+F.

multilingual propaganda

This cache includes relevant material in multiple languages. I have not trawled through the cache for non-English-language material, but it appears to include mentions of French-language musée and patrimoine, German-language Museum and Erbe, Italian-language museo and patrimonio… Unfortunately, conversion of the content corrupted the display of material in Russian (and potentially other languages), but heritage appears to be addressed in all of the languages that are used. [The problem with display has since been Universal Cyrillic Decoder). This has since been fixed by software architect Martijn Pieter.]

For instance, German-language content discussed ‘Hitler antiquities: police discover hidden Nazi collection in Buenos Aires [Hitler-Antiquitäten: Polizei entdeckt versteckte Nazi-Sammlung in Buenos Aires]’, ‘burglary in the police station: thieves steal antiquities from showcases [Einbruch im Polizeipräsidium: Diebe stehlen Antiquitäten aus Vitrinen]’ and (notably frequently) ‘robbery at Bode Museum: 100-kilo gold coin stolen [Raub im Bode-Museum: 100-Kilo-Goldmünze gestohlen]’. Italian-language content relayed ‘Roma, Bergamo: “Museums and archaeological sites ought to be free. No to a ticket for the Pantheon.” [Roma, Bergamo: “Vorrei musei e siti archeologici gratuiti. No a biglietto per il Pantheon”]’.

consistency in identification and selection of evidence

For the sake of consistency in identification, coherence in collection and confidence in interpretation, I have limited this preliminary review to English-language searches for: ancient; [antiquarian/antiquarians,] antique/antiques or antiquity/antiquities; archaeology and its variants; artefact(s) or artifact(s); excavation, looting, pillage, plunder, smuggling and their variants; demolition and its variants; museum(s); and relic(s).

In spite of care, inevitably, there will have been some inconsistency in the selection of “sufficiently relevant”, “significant” content.

constrictions on identification of evidence

It was not feasible to manually process the innumerable results for “monument(s)”, which (significantly, yet not exclusively) reflect Russian intervention in the American discussion of negative heritage, such as monuments to advocates of slavery.

It was not feasible to scan for minimal, common sets of letters, such as “art” or “rob”, or generic terms, such as “burgle”, “damage”, “destroy”, “historic(al)”, “rob”, “steal”, “thieve” or “traffic”. Obviously, this prevented the collection of significant content that did not contain other searched keywords, such as ‘#acapa BREAKING : Left-Wing Rioters Destroy Confederate Statue in Durham’. Others were only found incidentally, such as ‘⭕️ #Mosul: #Iraq/i troops find #Assyrian treasures in network of #Isis tunnels’.

Although the searches were completed, even relevant results for “loot” were crowded out with racist propaganda that sought to incite hatred in the United States.

It was also not feasible to account for deliberate or accidental misspellings of keywords, such as “antiquities” in ‘IS Looting Atiquities on Industrial Scale’ (which was identified in searches for “looting”).

Likewise, it was not feasible to document content on natural heritage crime and other environmental matters, from ‘Push to save African elephants stirs U.S. clash over antique ivory trade #environment’ to ‘South China Sea ruling won’t stop plundering of ecosystem, experts say #environment’, as well as illicit trade in related commodities, such as ‘Afghanistan aims to choke Taliban smuggling funds with gemstone bourse #world #news’.

While the violent or otherwise political destruction of “community property” as well as “cultural property” was covered, it was not feasible to cover demolition for gentrification, such as ‘Moscow’s aggressive propaganda for its housing demolition program may backfire, writes @dashalitvinovv #russia’. 9/11 conspiracy theories were not considered.

the significance of insignificant content

Although this very preliminary review is extensive in its collation of potentially relevant tweets, it is not exhaustive. So, it does not include tangential posts, such as ‘Demolition starts at Pablo Escobar’s Miami Beach mansion #story’ (which is related, because Escobar laundered money from drug crime with cultural goods, including possibly looted pre-Columbian antiquities).

It does not include generic posts, either, such as “#ItalyEarthquake The ancient clock tower in town of Amatrice stopped working just after 3:30am, the exact moment the earthquake hit (CBS)”. It tries to select ones that address destruction of cultural property, trafficking of cultural objects and/or the politics of cultural heritage.

Some generic posts may suggest the target audience (or show a way of obscuring key content) for the trolls, such as “Something Is Heating Up Inside Egypt’s Ancient Pyramids And Scientists Can’t Explain It”.

statistics

For one reason or another, browser searches did not recognise certain repeated texts, so there may be a few duplicates within categories. Plus, a few texts contain more than one keyword (such as “ancient” and “antiquities”), so they appear in more than one category. In theory, the minimum numbers of significant tweets for all keywords cannot be combined to establish a total minimum.

At the same time, I have only included each text once in each category, even though many have been tweeted or retweeted by multiple trolls. In practice, the scale of attention to heritage is higher than it appears.

very preliminary findings

an indication of the potential intensity of targeting of heritage

A partially-collected, eventually-abandoned list of (re)tweets on “monument(s)” was attempted. (fn1) There were around 113 instances in the first 132,535 lines of 381,017 tweets in file 1. So, there may be around 325 instances in file 1; based on their frequency in this sample, there may be around 2,535 instances in total. [According to Simon Willison’s Datasette, there are 744 instances of monument and 638 instances of monuments, so 1,382 instances in total, including significant content and background content.]

Estimation of scale is somewhat difficult, as the contents are split across the files in alphabetical order of handle (beginning with usernames that begin with a zero in file 1, ending with usernames that begin with an underscore in file 9), so the contents for various campaigns are not evenly distributed across the files.

Non-English-language content has not been excluded from any files. As Linvill and Warren have calculated, out of the total of 2,973,371 tweets under 2,848 handles, 828,219 tweets under 1,472 handles were ‘predominantly in a language other than English’.

Furthermore, 1,034 handles did not tweet during the sample period.

So, the final predominantly English-language sample comprises 1,875,029 tweets under 1,311 handles. Significant content on monuments alone may constitute around 0.1352 per cent of the total. [Altogether, pieces of significant and background content on monuments constitute 0.0737 per cent of the total. However, this appears to be an entirely inadequate measure of the intensity of targeting. (fn3)]

a niche

Clearly, it is a niche target, rather than the main target, of this online propaganda. Still, based on the frequency of other keywords, I had earlier guesstimated that (re)tweets on destruction, trafficking and politics might constitute 0.1 per cent in total.

In fact, with regard to significant (re)tweets, there were at least 158 on “ancient” matters; 43 on [antiquarians,] antiques or antiquities; 32 on archaeology and its variants; 45 on artefacts or artifacts; 69 on excavation, looting, pillage, plunder, smuggling and their variants; 63 on demolition and its variants; 305 on museums; and 10 on relics. In total, then, there were at least 725 pieces of significant content on the destruction, trafficking and politics of heritage – 0.0387 per cent of the total.

This is a tiny fraction. Yet, as noted, it excludes (re)tweets on “art”, “burgling”, “damaging”, “destroying”, “historic”, “monuments”, “robbing”, “stealing”, “thieving” or “trafficking” and their variants. Furthermore, it excludes the types of cultural objects that are at risk, such as statues, ceramics, coins…

These “significant” (re)tweets are on top of the much larger number of “background” (re)tweets on “everyday” aspects of cultural heritage, which include several tweets on metal-detecting, treasure-hunting and their variants. (fn2) I still do not expect all of the significant and background (re)tweets to constitute much more than 1 per cent of the total. Nonetheless, they indicate that heritage is targeted by Russian trolls.

[As I concluded (fn3), and as was more reliably judged by computer security specialist Dave Aitel (@daveaitel), there is ‘surprisingly little in this dataset on Syria [and Crimea in Ukraine], a common Russian topic with other bot networks’, which suggests that there is ‘a bit of selection bias with the original account set’. In other words, any statistics would be at least unreliable, if not misleading. Again, the evidence still demonstrates the targeting of heritage.]

caution in interpretation

Was the material on the destruction, trafficking and politics of heritage collected or produced as background content for other targets? Were apparent trends in trolls’ content actually products of my search criteria and/or the public’s concerns?

It is natural that the trolls are targeting significant issues. It would be nonsensical for them to try to influence public debate and government policy by targeting insignificant issues. So, it may be impossible to distinguish between “natural” attention in public discussion, artificial attention from Russian agents and accidental spotlighting by niche research.

Undoubtedly, my search criteria and the public’s concerns have some effect. For example, the content on “ancient” matters is far more diverse than the content on “monument(s)”. Nonetheless, amongst other things, the trolls’ usernames and their handwritten tweets’ content indicate targeting of pressure points to advance Russia’s interests, such as Black Lives Matter and civil rights in the United States.

confidence in interpretation

For instance, one left troll handle, @BLACKMATTERSUS, produced content such as ‘Historic circular advertising slave sale. Now in in a slave cabin museum at Boone Hall. #BlackMatters’. This unambiguous handle and its unambiguous content demonstrate that African-American history and museum education are targets. There were at least 305 pieces of strikingly significant content on museums, hundreds of pieces of inevitably significant content (like practically and and all discussion of museum education in relation to African-American history) and thousands of pieces of background content.

These (re)tweets also reaffirm that the measures of significant content are minimal, as all museums are somewhat political and any museum of the African-American experience is strikingly political. This subject is being exploited by the troll army for that reason. Yet “typical” statements in social media were excluded.

Other tweets may suggest the writing process. For example, one tweet – ‘Foke Two Van Gogh paintings stolen in 2002 from a Dutch museum are recovered by Italian anti-Mafia police #Foke’ – twice used the term “foke”. It is a portmanteau of “fake” or “faux” and “woke” (awake to racial justice and other forms of social justice), which characterises someone who is not genuinely awake to such matters, someone who pretends to be concerned with social justice or to realise that concern in the conduct of their daily lives. It does not make sense in this context.

In this case, newsfeed troll @DARKNALLY (where “nally” may be vulgar slang for female genitals) wrote ‘Foke’ at the start and ‘#Foke’ at the end of the overwhelming majority of 2,451 tweets, which addressed a wide range of subjects. Were they trying to disrupt the use of that primarily African-American term or to push content to a primarily African-American audience? As can be seen in the content below, some trolls added irrelevant or even nonsensical hashtags. Were they trying to trick spam-filtering algorithms, by mimicking the use of hashtags in normal writing, in order to push their content?

Regardless, it is undeniable that there is artificial attention and it is reasonable to assume that heritage matters are as carefully targeted as other matters. Indeed, it is unreasonable to assume that heritage matters are less carefully targeted than other matters. Many of the identified tweets did not include significant terms other than the heritage keywords. If they were mere background content, it would be difficult to understand why the trolls made the effort to collect or produce content with relatively obscure terms such as “antiquities” or “artefacts”.

It would seem to be a striking coincidence, if the authors of content in different languages randomly chose the same keywords. Indeed, they sometimes produced identical tweets in multiple languages, such as ‘MG08 on the minaret of the Ayasofya Museum, 1941’ under @MATEVIDENCE and ‘MG08 auf dem Minarett der Ayasofya Museum 1941’ under @MATEVIDENCEDEU.

It would be a remarkable coincidence, if the carelessly targeted content incidentally addressed subjects that were useful in Russia’s propaganda, from the toppling of monuments in the United States, to the handling of stolen cultural goods from a museum in the Netherlands by paramilitaries in Ukraine, to the destruction of ancient sites by the Islamic State in Syria. In fact, at least one of the left trolls, @KANIJJACKSON, specifically and repeatedly used #CivilRightsMuseum.

troll factories: the Internet Research Agency and state-sponsored heritage agenda-building

troll factories

According to the categorisations by Linvill and Warren, “right trolls” posed as right-wing nationalists who typically promoted Donald Trump-style Republican politics; “left trolls” posed as left-wing liberals who typically promoted Bernie Sanders-style Democratic politics, primarily identity politics, whether racial identity, religious identity, or gender/sexual identity. Data scientist Joshua Loftus and computer security specialist Dave Aitel have observed that some of the commentary within those tides of thought went against the flow.

Meanwhile, “newsfeeds” posed as news aggregators, typically ones who shared American news from professional journalistic sources, occasionally ones who shared international news from Russia-linked sources, such as the Assad regime’s Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) and the Russian government’s Russia Today (RT); “hashtag gamers” played – and politicised – Twitter community games with hashtags. Likewise, as summarised by online communication specialist David Puente, the Italian-language handles pushed populist content that was aligned with the somewhat left-wing Five Star Movement or the far right-wing League. (A few pushed so little content or such ambiguous content that they were difficult to categorise. A few were miscategorised.)

There also appear to have been “fearmongers”, who ‘spread news of a [specific] fabricated crisis event’, but they may simply have been abandoned before their users could reinvent them as a different identity, their apparent existence may be an accidental product of changes in handles (or computer tracking of those changes). Anyway, the event was not related to heritage.

Otherwise, right trolls, left trolls and newsfeeds pushed significant content on heritage. Even hashtag-gamers pushed at least some significant content on heritage, in relation to the representation of the ancient world – and racial claims to descent from ancient cultures – in modern culture.

heritage agenda-building

I recognise some of the content because it exploits the same sources of evidence that I do, such as ‘Looted in Syria – and sold in London’ by Rachel Shabi, which presents an undercover investigation by Mark Altaweel; ‘Dartmouth led study shows ISIS is not the only culprit in war-related looting in Syria’ by Dartmouth University, which summarises satellite imagery-based analysis of archaeological looting in Syria by Jesse Casana; ‘Scholars across the globe have joined forces to save Syrian antiquities.’ by the University of Melbourne, which publicises the efforts of Shirin International; ‘Two Van Gogh paintings stolen in 2002 from a Dutch museum are recovered by Italian anti-Mafia police‘ by the Associated Press (AP), which highlights a case that has been deeply reported by the Association for Research into Crimes against Art (ARCA); and ‘ISIS Is Selling Syria’s Antiquities to the West’ by George Brown, which publicises the investigative journalism of Benoit Fauçon and Georgi Kantchev.

It also exploits information-sharing and public engagement, such as the Ask Me Anything (AMA) session on Reddit by Holocaust-looted art recovery expert Randy Schoenberg, about how ‘You collect a few interesting stories when you recovered Nazi-looted art for a living’, and the tweet by historian Tom Holland about archaeologist Rachel Pope, with which I demonstrated the exploitation of innocent sources. Based on the visibility of the phrases in some of the pushed content, it seems that the trolls may be using services for keyword alerts and content feeds to queue up and send out some of the material.

And I recognise some of the offline propaganda that I have been fact-checking and fighting, such as variations on the claim that ‘Islamic State nets up to $200 million a year from antiquities: Russia’, which I have been tracking and teaching for more than three years now, since the original claim that the Islamic State was ‘pocket[ing] $100 million‘, which was made by an official of Iraq.

Amongst other matters (and without any order), the propaganda covers:

  • illicit trafficking of cultural objects from Algeria, Cambodia, China, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Egypt, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, India, Iraq, Israel-Palestine, Italy, Myanmar/Burma, the Netherlands, Syria and the United States, including restitution of Holocaust-looted art and other antiquities;
  • violent destruction of cultural property in Brazil, India, Indonesia, Iraq, Mali, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Ukraine and the United States;
  • political violence at heritage sites in Egypt, Ethiopia, France, Iraq, Syria, Tunisia, Ukraine and the United States;
  • political exploitation of cultural property in violence and propaganda, such as displacement and occupation in Israel-Palestine and Ukraine; and
  • cultural heritage as evidence in arguments for or against ethnic and religious nationalism; creationism and evolution; racism, nationalism, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, sexism and homophobia.

It is notable that the ‘small number’ of newsfeed trolls who covered ‘global issues, often with a pro-Russia perspective’, were responsible for a large amount of the content on violent destruction of cultural property and political violence at heritage sites in Syria, such as the conquest of Palmyra by the Islamic State and the “liberation” of Palmyra by the Assad regime and the Russian Federation. Other English-language content on violent destruction in Ukraine and illicit trafficking by armed groups in Ukraine was pushed by uncategorised, predominantly non-English-language trolls.

For instance, ‘Lugansk’s Museum of History and Culture – destroyed by Ukrainian shelling, restored by #Lugansk People’s Republic.’ was tweeted by self-proclaimed “independent UK journo” Graham Phillips (@GrahamWP_UK), who is an ‘information soldier‘ for the Russian cause, who has worked for a media channel of the Russian Ministry of Defence (Zvezda) and Russia Today (RT), then retweeted by a troll @MARGOSAVAZH.

‘Dva khrama Moskovskovo patriarkhata bili podozhzheni i ogrableni v Rovenskoi oblasti Ukraini [Два храма Московского патриархата были подожжены и ограблены в Ровенской области Украины]’ was originally reported by the Russian Social Movement (Russkoe Obshchestvennoe Dvizhenie [Русское Общественное Движение (РОД)] @rod_ru). Its translation, ‘Two churches adhering to Moscow Patriarchate were burned and pillaged overnight in Western Ukraine’, was tweeted by (the apparently authentic account of) musician Valentina Lisitsa (@ValLisitsa), then retweeted by a troll @SLEVIN_324.

‘Art stolen from Frisian Museum in 2005 foun in hands of Ukraine’s top extreme right politicians. Thanks @JefHorians’ was tweeted by @ValLisitsa, then retweeted by a troll @ALLAHOMORE. ‘PLEASE! RT and share! Urgent plea by the director of Westfries Museum to rescue stolen art’ was tweeted by @ValLisitsa, then retweeted by a troll @VIKAGOGOGO. ‘Ukrainian Nazi, accused of stolen art handling, mocks Westfries Museum director’s plea on his official Facebook page’ was tweeted by @ValLisitsa, then retweeted by a troll @PROFDYSTROPHIC. ‘Whose portraits are mockingly offered to Westfries Museum? Mr.Bandera. An introduction.’ was tweeted by @ValLisitsa, then retweeted by a troll @VIKAHOLIDAYS.

These findings complement ongoing research into the Russian trolls who were identified by the Syria Campaign, in their investigation into killing the truth: how Russia is fuelling a disinformation campaign to cover up war crimes in Syria; I am tracing a Turkey-focused strand of that propaganda network. On top of implicit or explicit indicators of an interest in heritage in the trolls’ accounts, there is discussion of the policing of cultural property crime. Altogether, these propaganda projects reaffirm that archaeology and other aspects of heritage are being used as weapons of information warfare in the New Cold War.

fn3: a niche niche, an inadequate measure or both?

It is impossible to do an adequate statistical review of overall content without more comprehensive data collection, with more extensive ranges of keywords. As noted, these keywords exclude both more generic terms, such as “theft”, and more specific terms, such as “sculpture”. Equally, it is impossible to perform such a review without study of all (re)tweets under analysis.

There is a significant possibility that a significant number of these (re)tweets relate to other activities or expressions. A few will have been counted more than once, as they include more than one keyword. A few will have been counted once when they should not have been counted at all, as the keywords are spelled the same in non-English-language content as in English-language content. So, these numbers cannot be assumed to indicate the intensity of targeting of heritage.

There are probably more incidentally-counted irrelevant (re)tweets than there are necessarily-uncounted relevant ones. So, the counts probably indicate the maximum intensity of targeting of heritage. These may help to reconsider the earlier guesstimations.

According to Simon Willison’s Datasette, encompassing (re)tweets of significant and background content, 591 used “ancient”; 123 used “antiquarian”, “antiquarians”, “antique”, “antiques”, “antiquity” or “antiquities”; 129 used “archaeology”, “archaeological”, “archaeologist”, “archaeologists”, “archeology”, “archeological”, “archeologist” or “archeologists”; 94 used “artefact”, “artefacts”, “artifact” or “artifacts”; 1,789 used “excavate”, “excavated”, “excavates”, “excavating”, “excavation”, “excavations”, “excavator”, “excavators”, “loot”, “looted”, “looter”, “looters”, “looting”, “loots”, “pillage”, “pillaged”, “pillager”, “pillagers”, “pillages”, “pillaging”, “plunder”, “plundered”, “plunderer”, “plunderers”, “plundering”, “plunders”, “smuggle”, “smuggled”, “smuggler”, “smugglers”, “smuggles” or “smuggling”; 555 used “demolish”, “demolished”, “demolishes”, “demolishing” or “demolition”; 1,382 used “monument” or “monuments”; 1,750 used “museum” or “museums”; and 35 used “relic” or “relics”.

So, there were up to 6,448 pieces of content that used the keywords, amongst a total of 1,875,029 pieces of content. Heritage propaganda probably constitutes less than 0.3439 per cent of the total output. The intensity of the targeting does not alter the fact of the targeting. Rather, it may help to identify the intention of the targeting.

However, to put it in context, there were only 555 instances of the emblematic archaeological site of “Palmyra” in Syria; they would probably constitute less than 0.0296 per cent of the total output. There were only 2,437 instances of “Ukraine”, 439 instances of “Ukrainian”, 54 instances of “Ukrainians”, 211 instances of “Kiev” and 16 instances of “Kiev”. By that measure, there would only be up to 3,157 pieces of content on Ukraine; they would probably constitute less than 0.1684 per cent of the total output. Seemingly, this is an inadequate measure of the intensity of targeting.

[As was more reliably judged by computer security specialist Dave Aitel (@daveaitel), there is ‘surprisingly little in this dataset on Syria [and Crimea in Ukraine], a common Russian topic with other bot networks’, which suggests that there is ‘a bit of selection bias with the original account set’. In other words, any statistics would be at least unreliable, if not misleading.]

[Likewise, data journalist Peter Aldhous (@paldhous) noted that “statue” was among the ‘most common distinctive words’ that were ‘used by Right Trolls’ in the aftermath of the riots in Charlottesville and the killing of anti-racist activist Heather Heyer. “Statue” was the last to spike in use, reaching the third-highest peak of the distinctive words: Charlottesville; antifa (antifascist); statue; violence; BLM (Black Lives Matter); racist. Indeed, it appears that the overwhelming majority of the 2,457 uses of “statue” were in this period.

“Confederate” with “statues” was the third pair of words to spike in use in the aftermath and reached the third-highest peak: Trump condemns; White supremacist; Confederate statues; alt left. A significant minority of the 631 uses of “Confederate” with “statues” were in this period. (Presumably, similar trends can be observed for the 1,221 uses of “statues” and the 321 uses of “Confederate” with “statue”.)

Yet, the 3,678 uses of “statue” or “statues” would probably constitute 0.1962 per cent of the total output; the 952 uses of “Confederate” with “statue” or “Confederate” with “statues” would probably constitute 0.0508 per cent of the total output. So very niche, yet very significant, uses of heritage may only be identified when they are charted chronologically (and possibly spatially).]
