Official on mission to promote, protect Egypt's history

Another article profiling Zahi Hawass, who is lecturing in Dayton on Wednesday and Thursday to two sell-out audiences: "One would not blame you, upon meeting Zahi Hawass, if you thought of Indiana Jones. There's the outfit — the dusty jeans, the blue work shirt with rolled-up sleeves, the crumpled fedora that is sweat-stained to almost Hollywood perfection. There's the confidence, too — he's a look-you-in-the-eye, take-charge lion of a man. He is impatient with people being uninformed around him and assumes that if you're talking to him, you understand that he's important".
