Tebtunis papyri returned to Bancroft Library

An article about returning items held temporarily by Oxford University to the University of California, Berkley, and reuniting a sequence of papyrii that have been separated since the 1950s: "Just a few weeks ago, three tins of ancient papyri belonging to the University of California, Berkeley, finally arrived home, shipped across the Atlantic more than a century after they were collected in Egypt". For the full story of how the papyri were originally mislaid and have now been returned, see the above web page.
