Some of our regular readers will recall a blog post I wrote a year ago about my experiences in Egypt during the 2011 Revolution (see here). I had just touched down at Cairo International airport in readiness to lead a 3-week tour of Egypt for Alumni Travel in Sydney when all hell broke loose on the streets of Cairo. Perhaps a vulnerable time to be in Egypt to some, I knew it was also a very momentous occasion in the history of modern Egypt and one which I couldn’t miss being a part of. A year later, I am writing my second instalment after having made a return visit to Egypt for the anniversary (yes, the tour successfully went ahead this time!). On this occasion, however, I was better prepared and took the opportunity to purchase two objects for the Museum’s collection which I would like to share with you in this post.
