Today, the Supreme Council for Antiquities is headed by Dr. Zahi Hawass who has singularly done more to protect the treasures of Egypt than any other Secretary General in the past. Not only has the flow of antiques out of Egypt virtually ceased, but great efforts are continuously being made to recover ones that have been taken from Egypt in the past. There is more emphasis, nowadays, on conservation rather than the simple ‘treasure hunting’ of the past; piece by piece Egypt’s history is being put together to reveal more and more of its remarkable and fascinating past.
New and important artifacts, tombs and monuments are constantly being found. If you would like to keep as up to date as possible on all the latest developments, you are directed to the Zawi Hawass website known as “The Plateau”.
