Repatriated Artifacts

Egypt's minister of culture today announced the University of London has handed back to Egyptian authorities some 25 000 artifacts including a 200 000-year-old ax. The collection will be displayed in the new Ahmed Fakhri museum in Dakhla.

This represents the largest haul of repatriated objects to date for the Supreme Council of Antiquities.
