Friday night, the Tourism and Antiquities Police managed to arrest 12 antique thieves in Meniya, in Upper Egypt, at the time they were selling 27 stolen items, including, Egyptian metal and black granite statues and scarabs of the same material.

An archaeological committee will inspect the collection in order to verify its authenticity and identify which Ancient Egyptian tombs they originally belonged to.

The suspects had large sums of money and a car with Libyan plates. They said they bought the antiquities from the meniya grave robbers.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news about archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.

    Needless to say, only emotions. And only positive ones. Thanks! Not only was it interesting to read (although I’m not a big fan of reading, I only go to the Internet to watch videos), it’s also written like this: thoughtfully, or something. And in general, everything is cool. Good luck to the author, I hope to see more of his posts! Interesting.
