French and Zahi in head to head

Lourve Museum in talks over 5 stolen Luxor paintings

Just last year we were given a lecture about a noble tomb that had a scene hacked out back in the 1960's. Obviously stuff bought back in the distant past is immune but these more recent artifacts are frankly completely illegal and should be returned. Luxor wants its nobles tombs back

Good luck to the SCA. Not just for these items, but for the retrieval of ALL stolen items, just as long as they can be proved to be stolen in the first place. I agree totally with the claiming back of all antiquities which left Egypt in error. When i went to Luxor Temple last November, it seemed so wrong to have only one Obelisk at the entrance (to name one item).
