Andrew Nayyar's curator insight, January 31, 8:10 PM

This article was again comparing the two regions of Sudan and Egypt. I liked how this article divides the regions of the Kushite Kingdom. I was fascinated at the Island of Menroe and its cemeteries and pyramids.

“Bring rare ancient Indian art objects home”

“Bring rare ancient Indian art objects home” | Archeology on the Net | Scoop.it

After undertaking a two-year-long research into Ashoka’s stone and bronze sculptures in South Asian countries, former Bharat Kala Bhavan director D. P. Sharma says it is high time that the Union Culture Ministry brought back rare ancient Indian art objects from abroad and displayed them in exhibitions across the country.

“Over the years, Buddhist travellers from China, Japan and other South Asian countries visiting India for pilgrimage have been gifted mementos and bronze sculptures of Ashoka. In 2001, an international exhibition of four great civilizations was mounted at established museums in Tokyo and Nagaya, where art objects from India, China, Egypt and Iraq were put on display. From India, art objects from the Indus Valley Civilisation were displayed. I led this delegation.”

Fortunately for Dr. Sharma, the Chinese delegation had brought a rare statue, which after meticulous examination he discovered was of Ashoka and had come from an ancient kingdom based on the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Excavation of 4,500-year-old boat at Giza pyramids begins

Excavation of 4,500-year-old boat at Giza pyramids begins | Archeology on the Net | Scoop.it

A joint Japanese and Egyptian team began on Tuesday the work of removing a 4,500 year old pharaonic boat from the pit on the Giza pyramid plateau where it is buried.

 

Restorers removed a wooden beam, part of a boat built for King Khufu which was buried in approximately 2,500 BC. The boat was discovered in 1954 along with another identical boat in a separate pit; the latter was removed and restored, and is now on display in a purpose-built museum on the site.

The beam is the first of several which will be removed for restoration.
