Just very quickly pushed off my desk amidst much work, as I wanted this in the thread for completion's sake:

Egyptologist and broadcaster Kara Cooney just posted a link on her Facebook page leading to a HuffPost article by Andrew Burmon.

Titled Golden Mummies: What Happened To The Indiana Jones Of Egypt?, it nicely summarizes what happened to Zahi Hawass since the Arab Spring, and what his prospects are under a potentially new institutionalised Islamic Republic of Egypt lead by the current generation of the Muslim Brotherhood. While the summary is comprehensive and well sourced, featuring comments by Dieter Arnold, Head of the Met’s Egypt Department, it should be noted that any ideas of an "Iran 2.0" occuring in Egypt are still nowhere on the horizon.

Salle ala Nabi, my fellow Raveners.
