LOS ANGELES, Feb. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Reporters covering the unrest in Egypt can schedule an interview with William Fulco, S.J., an expert in relics and antiquities, on the possible threat to Egypt's museums and archaeological sites.

"The Egyptians have an enormous sense of history," Fulco said in a recent interview. "The people themselves formed militias to protect sites of antiquities, including the Egyptian Museum, one of the most stunning museums in the world. … But some looters broke into the front gates and destroyed the ticket booth. They managed to get in the museum and broke into a few cases and the museum shop."

Fulco is a professor of Classics and Archaeology at Loyola Marymount University, and is regularly interviewed and consulted by the news media and entertainment industry about ancient cultures. He has made dozens of research trips to Egypt.
