This year archaeologists will forego celebrating Archaeologists Day as it coincides with the anniversary of the January 2011 revolution.
Mohamed Ibrahim, minister of state for antiquities, decided to cancel the celebration ceremony this year for the sake of the feelings of the families of the revolution's martyrs. Ibrahim also called on archaeologists to work hard to protect Egypt’s heritage.
