Coming Home from America

This has certainly been a year of international co-operation in the preservation of Egypt's heritage, though causes of the industry remain at odds with the intellectual desire to preserve everything in a museum drawer or others acquiring beautiful ancient objects for personal collections.

This is an article on a number of artifacts including coffins confiscated at New York city customs in 2011 and on their way back to Egypt in the coming year. The objects have probably come from illegal digs and also include Middle Kingdom artifacts.
