In the period 1999/2000 Egypt received 5.5 million people, delivering a boost to the Egyptian economy of 4.3 billion dollars. It is estimated that this figure rises between 4% and 7% every year.

this is more than the gross domestic national product of a lot of smaller countries nearby.

bearing this in mind how bothered do you think the E.A.C. is about Nabta.

are they bothered ?

I read somewhere that not only the Badarian culture (the one that immediately preceeded Egypt) and the AE themselves share their genetics between sub saharan Africa and the Levant. (can you confirm that Robert ?)

the modern Egyptians are 90% Moslem. So I don't think they regard ancient Egypt as their cultural heritage all that strongly as much as they do a cash cow. Compare Stonehenge with Giza for instance. Stonehenge is strongly connected to Modern Brits and as a result Stonehenge is free to visit. the population simply wouldn't stand for being charged to see something which they believe is already theirs
