There are more threats to Egypt’s archaeological treasures as the situation in Cairo deteriorates. The Egyptian Museum is adjacent to Tahrir Square, the hot spot for the protests- it’s the coral colored building you’ll see in many news broadcasts.

I’ve also read reports that the museum might have been mistaken about the two destroyed mummies- the heads might actually have been skulls already separated from their skeletons.

I want this resolved- I love Egypt and it’s getting more and more difficult to watch this unfold, both for the people currently living there and for the antiquities I don’t want to see destroyed.
