Looting of Antiquities

What follows is mostly links to Arabic language sites with pictures and news reports of looting of ancient Egyptian antiquities.  Many web browsers will translate them into a broken English.  Most telling are the before and after satellite photos of Lisht in this facebook page.  I would like to point out the limestone lid to a sarcophagus thrown to the side and the excavator tracks.

Reader's Guide to Ancient Egypt

A Reader's Guide to Ancient Egypt is available from the Egyptian Study Society.  The guide was originally written by Stuart Wier and is being updated by Bill Cherf.  This guide is comprehensive for the early writings about ancient Egypt, but the pace of research and new books continually being published keeps the guide in constant need of updates.  Works recommended for inclusion would be welcome.  Please include a brief description of any publication submitted.
