The Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities of Egypt has uploaded a list of variety of artifacts that have been selected to be the special pieces and to be exhibit during the month of May in museums across the country.
As part of the monthly tradition of Egyptian museums across the republic, museums chose May pieces, through a public referendum through their Facebook social media pages.
Professor Mo’men Othman, head of the museum sector at the Supreme Council for Archaeology, explained that this tradition comes within the framework of museums’ role as cultural, cultural and educational institutions that work to raise tourism and archaeological awareness among all levels of society.
He added that the public signed their choice on the artifacts that highlight the status of the family in conjunction with the International Day of the Family, which was read by the United Nations General Assembly to be on May 15 every year in order to celebrate the family and raise awareness of all its aspects.
The head of the museum sector pointed out that the ancient Egyptian was eager to marry at an early age, the ancient Egyptian family was perfectly stable and had religious principles and rules followed during different historical periods, and the sage “Batah-Hutab” also left many important tips for establishing a family and how to maintain it.
