Should Mummies be taken back to where they belong?

Mummies come up in the discussion every now and then. There is something so fascinating about the prospect of wrapping up a human in bandages and salts to preserve the body forever after.

Every once in a while an author will base an adventure tale on mummies and ancient Egypt only to find that the copies are being sold like hot cakes. (Makes you wonder as to who even eats cakes nowadays anyway)

Directors, actors, and scriptwriters have been known to turn around their careers once they make a flick on the subject. Children become obsessed with ankhs and dog headed gods when they come across the Egyptians in history class projects that pay homage to the age-old civilization.

Throngs of crowds visit the boy king ‘Tutankhamun’ and museums earn truckloads from visitor fees as a result. While browsing about the fascinating treasures that the Egyptians have left behind it is inevitable for one to stumble upon an age-old debate that impassions quite a few individuals.

The debate is being the question of the treasures and mummies being returned to their homeland after all these years. One could argue that civilization is a world heritage now and this entitles the world to have access to the wonders this highly advanced civilization held. The argument, in this case, would state that since the original Egyptians have died off, the current day Egyptians do not have any real claim on the history and magic.

This then would also mean that the treasures of the other civilizations should be shared with the rest of the nations too. A few set nations should not enjoy a high tourist count just because they had the resources to plunder these treasures and transport them far off to their countries.

The final word is still out on the topic. This heated discussion might even have a utility in the form of popularizing all that makes the Ancient Egyptians so special.
