After the Egyptian revolution, the lack of protection for many archaeological sites throughout the country has caused an increase in the looting and robbery of Egypt's most ancient and treasured artifacts.
U.C. Berkeley archaeologist Carol Redmount, who has been excavating and studying ancient sites in Egypt for over 20 years, showed NBC News' Richard Engel the scope of the problem. She works 180 miles south of Cairo in a town called Al-Heba. Her site was completely destroyed by looters in the year and a half since the revolution.
Editor's Note: Richard Engel's full report, 'Tomb Raiders,' airs Thursday, June 28 at 10pm/9c on NBC's Rock Center with Brian Williams.
