King Tut Gold Mask Botch Job: Calls for Investigation as Head Restorer Demoted
While the archaeological blogosphere is still claiming the Tut Gold Mask botch job is no big deal or even that such concerns that have been raised stem from "neo-colonialist" attitudes, more serious commentators have demanded an investigation and the head of restoration at the Cairo Museum has been demoted. At least the offending restoration specialist was not condemned to death. That has already happened to others in Sisi's Egypt for those charged with destruction of cultural property.
