Egyptian Museum to Inventory Relics

Two Years Before Museum Inventory is Complete

August 23, 2011 - A committee has been formed to inspect all artifacts at the Egyptian Museum to assure that the artifacts are present and accounted for.

After Eid al-Ftr, seven sub committees will form to help verify the authenticity of the artifacts currently in the museum and storage. The committee has already examined over 1,700 artifacts, finding pieces believed to be stolen during January 28th, Friday of Anger, but it will take at least another two years to finish taking stock of the entire collection.
