Ancient Egypt Online Map of Archaeological Looting

There is a really useful map on Ancient Egypt Online of the sites of the looting that has been reported Egypt's Past at Risk - Theft of antiquities so far (map) which well shows an epicentre in the north concentrating around the centres of unrest in Cairo and the Delta:

That "so far" is a worrying reminder that what we've seen might be just the beginning, depending on how quickly stability can be restored.

UPDATE at about midday today (Wednesday) the Egyptian Internet was working, so hopefully we may be able to find out more about what has been happening.
