Stepping Up to the Plate
CPO may not agree with his colleague's desire to restrict Egyptian coins, but David O'Conner and the American Research Center are to be commended for their efforts to train Egyptian conservators and hire their own site guards. Moreover, CPO appreciates Brian Daniels' suggestion that archaeologists hire their own guards and publish their reports in Arabic in addition to English or some other language. These are small steps, but focused ones that will have a positive impact on the appreciation and protection of Egypt's cultural heritage.
