What can you do?
Egyptian antiquities represent our common cultural heritage. Egyptologists estimate that less than five percent of the “buried treasures” have been excavated to date. When looting occurs, it is more than the object that is lost. When the context of the item is distributed, valuable clues to the past are alsolost.
Don’t let the thieves be the winners. Individuals and the private sector also have roles to play. Please get involved in bringing culturally racketeering to a halt.
