Seventy-five archaeological missions will resume excavation projects in Egypt as of Monday, said Mohamed Ismail, a senior official with the Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA).
Several foreign missions had halted their operations in Egypt in light of the January 25 revolution and the security void that followed the 18-day protests which toppled the regime of Hosni Mubarak. Many foreign embassies had asked their missions to leave Egypt.
