The history of tomb raiders seeking storied treasure buried in Egyptian tombs is a very long and complex one. On this episode of Inquiry, we welcome back MARIA GOLIA. She is a long-time resident of Cairo and the author of critically acclaimed books on Egypt past and present. Her new book is a fascinating history of this shady enterprise: A SHORT HISTORY OF TOMB-RAIDING: THE EPIC HUNT FOR EGYPT’S TREASURES.
