Saving Deir al-Surian manuscripts
I'm not sure whether this is just a broken link, or whether this one-liner is the entire story on the new Egyptian Gazette website - I suspect the former. But at the moment, the entire piece on the page reads as follows: "A gathering of antiquities' experts and lovers, as well as officials from the British Embassy, last week tried to find a way to save the ancient manuscripts in the library of Deir al-Surian (al-Surian Monastery) at Wadi al-Natroun".
It may be worth checking the link on the above page later on to see if it is changed so that it leads to further details.
If anyone knows where Saturday's Egyptian Mail now resides, I'd be grateful for the link.
