Feature: The 10 most important Egyptian objects outside Egypt

Egyptians blog (lovely Tim Reid)

Tim has helpfully assembled a list of Egyptian artefacts which are not in Egypt's hands but are of considerable importance. Very topical at the moment, of course.

This is a list of the most important Egyptian artifacts not the property of Egypt's Supreme council of antiquities. Though there are certainly more contenders for the list including perhaps the gold headdress of a wife of Thutmosis III in New York's Metropolitan museum of art or the Norbert Schimmel talatats from that same institution.
