Due to the sheer volume of stories related to the current situation in the country, Egypt has its own thread this month. For information on other Near Eastern countries, please see February 2011 Archeology - Ancient Near East

Again, some blogs were on top of all the developments:
http://egyptology.blogspot.com/
http://www.eloquentpeasant.com/
http://www.kv64.info/ (might have to scroll a bit through this one)
http://paul-barford.blogspot.com/ (ditto)

... and there was much discussion in the Facebook group:

Not sure we had this account of looting at Saqqarah last week:
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/lee-rosenbaum/news-flash-detailed-first_b_818903.html

Early in the week we heard of damaged items from the Cairo Museum being repaired:
http://www.artdaily.org/index.asp?int_sec=11&int_new=44780&int_modo=1
 
... with an update later in the week:
http://www.drhawass.com/blog/restoration-continues-egyptian-museum-cairo

... and we heard of more items being recovered:
http://www.drhawass.com/blog/update-antiquities

... and the two "Maya" tombs being safe (contrary to earlier reports):
http://blogs.ngm.com/blog_central/2011/02/report-from-saqqara-contrary-to-rumor-the-two-maya-tombs-are-safe.html
http://english.ahram.org.eg/NewsContent/9/40/5092/Heritage/Ancient-Egypt/Egyptian-Museums-priceless-artifiacts-restored-.aspx

... but tourism was hurting (is that really news?):
http://www.artdaily.org/index.asp?int_sec=2&int_new=44877
 
... and other stories, with the pyramids also reopening to the public later in the week:
http://www.google.com/hostednews/canadianpress/article/ALeqM5i2XvYzla2bBpUwHCYY7V0NSlV4ww?docId=5909390

Work was suspended at the Seila Pyramid site:
http://www.unreportedheritagenews.com/2011/02/work-suspended-at-4600-year-old-seila.html

Then Zahi Hawass dropped a bombshell about damage which, curiously, he didn't seem aware of before (?):
http://www.drhawass.com/blog/sad-news
 
... with some useful commentary:
http://phdiva.blogspot.com/2011/02/cairo-museum-thefts.html (Dorothy King)
http://www.artsjournal.com/culturegrrl/2011/02/one-armed_tut_hawass_issues_de.html(Lee Rosenbaum)

Meanwhile, the Met says it still plans to return some Tut-related items to Egypt:

Pondering the 'portrait' of Seneb and family:
