A collection of 13 stone engravings arrived to the National Museum of Egyptian Civilisation from Aswan


A collection of 13 stone engravings arrived to the National Museum of Egyptian Civilisation in Fustat, Giza on Wednesday evening from Al Shisha hill in Aswan.

Antiquities Minister Khaled El-Enany announced that the engravings have been very well preserved and would be subject to restoration and archeological documentation leading up to the museum’s official opening.

The museum’s Supervisor-General Mahrous Saeed said that the engravings have been dated to pre-dynastic times except for one that is dated to the Middle Kingdom era. The latter engraving, Saeed explained, depicts King Senusert III standing and beating his arming who are bending before him.

A permanent exhibition hall is set to be inaugurated soon in the museum and will display an exhibition entitled “Handicrafts and Productions in ancient Egypt.”

The exhibition will display 429 artefacts relating to industrial development in ancient Egypt from pre-historic times through to the New Kingdom era.
