3,000-year-old gate moved to Grand Egyptian Museum

The Antiquities Ministry has moved a 3,000-year-old gate from north Cairo to the Grand Egyptian Museum, according to The Associated Press. The Ministry says the gate is made from pink granite and bears royal cartouches referring to Amenemhat I, the first king of the 12th dynasty of ancient Egypt. It will undergo restoration and be put on display in the Museum, which is set to be partially opened in 2018.
