There have been reports this week about a brewing issue between National Museums Scotland and Egypt’s Antiquities Repatriation Department. The matter appears to involve the appropriate permission to display a block of limestone from the Great Pyramid of Giza and the associated documentary evidence of authenticity. We do not go into the ‘ins and outs’ of what is being presently reported. Rather we re-post in one single place, a number of our previous blogs on some of the critical issues associated with movement and display of works of art or objects of cultural importance.
