Egypt in the News

Hey guys,

I’ve noticed a lot of articles coming out about ancient Egypt the past few weeks. For example there was a case just last week of a Chinese tourist scratching graffiti onto the walls of a tomb and another story about an ancient Egyptian city which was just recently discovered in the Delta. Cool stuff!

Hey guys. This is something interesting that I happened stumbled upon while doing research for the group wiki. I figured it didn’t really pertain to the group project because it doesn’t discuss the tombs themselves but it certainly makes one think about the validity and accuracy of the assumptions we’ve made based on records left by the historians of antiquity.
