Tomb Raiders: Ancient artifacts looted after Egyptian revolution After the Egyptian revolution, the lack of protection for many archaeological sites throughout the country has caused an increase in looting and robbery of ancient artifacts. U.C. Berkeley archaeologist Carol Redmont, who has been excavating and studying ancient sites in Egypt for over 20 years, shows Richard Engel the scope of the problem.
Engel's full report airs Thursday, June 28 at 10pm/9c on NBC's Rock Center with Brian Williams.
