Met Is to Repatriate to Egypt Artifacts from King Tut's Tomb

from The New York Times

The Metropolitan Museum of Art is voluntarily returning nineteen artifacts to Egypt that had been in its collection for decades and that Met curators recently determined came from Tutankhamen's tomb. The small-scale objects will be on display until January as part of the Tutankhamen exhibition in Times Square. After that, they are to be exhibited at the Met for six months and then sent to Egypt to be shown at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo and the Grand Egyptian Museum at Giza when it opens in 2012. more
