Egypt Retrieves 454 Ancient Artifacts from Myers Museum

Egyptian authorities have recovered 454 ancient Egyptian artifacts, including pharaonic pottery and bronze coins, from the UK’s Myers Museum. They had been removed from the country more than 30 years ago.

The items included 12 bronze coins, four scarabs, 94 beaded necklaces, 99 fragments of pottery with colored drawings and 109 funerary figures, 60 pieces of pharaonic fabrics, 4 pottery pieces and pottery and stones statues.

Dr. Hawass, Secretary–General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities said the pieces belonged to the family of Ron Davey who offered them to the museum. The recovered artifacts were taken out of the country between 1972 and 1988 after UNESCO banned antiquities trafficking in 1970. Since 2002, the Council has recovered some 5,000 ancient Egyptian artifacts that were taken out of the country.
