(p.355) 12 Conclusion
Contesting Antiquity in Egypt

Donald Malcolm Reid

American University in Cairo Press

The conclusion summarizes the archaeological and museum themes covered from World War I to the Egyptian Revolution of 1952, using the symbolism on coins, stamps, and banknotes along with other media to show shifting ideological emphases. The revolution quickly completed the Egyptianization of personnel in the Antiquities Service and universities, but a range of old-new challenges still lay ahead. The book concludes with a glance ahead to Nasser's shift from Egyptian to Arab nationalism and the UNESCO-sponsored campaign to salvage the monuments and archaeology of Nubia ahead of their flooding by the High Dam at Aswan.
