An American archeologist and Egyptologist tweeted out information on how people can “safely” destroy monuments Sunday as rioters defaced and destroyed monuments in Washington, D.C., and across the nation.
Sarah Parcak, who is a professor at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, shared detailed instructions on how to remove obelisks and even included a diagram.
“PSA For ANYONE who might be interested in how to pull down an obelisk* safely from an Egyptologist who never ever in a million years thought this advice might come in handy,” she tweeted.
Using an asterisk, Parcak stated that such monuments are “racist.”
She then shared a thread explaining how a group of people could successfully topple such a structure.
