>Many of Egypt’s greatest treasures have ended up in foreign countries, including the Rosetta Stone, which unlocked the secrets of Egyptian hieroglyphs. Now Egypt wants the Rosetta Stone back.

>My knowledge of the Rosetta Stone is limited, but from what I do know, I feel it should stay in the British Museum. It is a monumental artifact to all of humanity. I believe it can be appreciated by more people if it remains where it is.I respect the feelings of the Egyptians, and honestly, if it were an American artifact my patriotism would probably want it back. However, humanity as a whole has greater access to London than it does to Egypt.So, I ask where would it serve better? History belongs to everyone. Personally, I feel the Rosetta Stone serves best the history of humanity by staying right where it is.
