Sarah Parcak

A blue-tick verified Egyptologist has offered “advice” to rioters in US cities on how to “safely” pull down obelisks for “anyone who might be interested,” drawing both abject disbelief and admiration on social media.

Sarah Parcak, a well-known US archaeologist whose work involves “using satellites to uncover ancient Egyptian ruins” according to the Smithsonian Magazine, offered the tips on how to destroy monuments in a lengthy Twitter thread on Sunday.

Parcak said she “never ever in a million years thought this advice might come in handy” before proceeding to explain how groups of people protesting the brutal police killing of George Floyd might band together to pull down racially controversial monuments in the US.
