Boxes of artifacts misplaced during WWII found again

A trove of ancient artifacts which were misplaced during WWII have been found again and now have a new home in the Bode Museum in Berlin.

Dozens of mostly Egyptian objects from the 4th to 7th centuries AD which had been missing since the end of World War II have been unearthed and returned to a Berlin museum, officials said Monday.

The 44 pieces were identified as being part of the Bode Museum’s collection of Byzantine art after being stored for decades in two boxes at Leipzig University’s Egyptian Museum in eastern Germany.
