Nefertiti's bust, time to go home?

Wafaa El-Seddiq head of the International Union for the Preservation of Heritage and former director of the Egyptian Museum asks why the famous bust of Queen Nefertiti is still in Germany. This is by far one of the best written and persuasively argued accounts from the Egyptian side which I have seen in a long time.

Coincidentally, in a few days time the Barford family is headed off to Berlin, specifically to see the Nefertiti bust.

Have fun - and say "hi" to the Pergamon Altar whilst you're there ;-)
