DAHSHUR, EGYPT - NOVEMBER 09: An Egyptian family visiting the pyramids of Dahshur explore new holes that have appeared nearby, on November 09, 2012, in Dahshur, Egypt. Artifact thieves have made new holes on the edge of Dahshur, digging beside the archeological sites of Sneferu's Pyramids. These include Sneferu's Red Pyramid, and Sneferu's Bent Pyramid. Since the revolution, Egyptian security forces haven't been guarding archeological sites as much as in the past. (Photo by David Degner/Getty Images)
