ICOM Preliminary report on museums in Egypt

The ICOM Preliminary report on museums in Egypt of 3rd February, presenting their initial findings of the damage and risks to Egypt’s historic sites and museums, cites both my News from the Valley of the Kings blog and the new Egyptological Looting Database I set up on 31st January 2011.  The valuable report draws heavilly upon material from the Looting Database website.

Very kindly, the chair of the ICOM Disaster Relief Task Force, Thomas Schuler, also emailed me to say, “thank you very much for your very helpful blog and database!”  It was a lot of work – and continues to be – and it is pleasing that it has been of value to such an important effort.
