Ethan Somerset posts in The Relic Hunters
The men advanced on Bill and Ethan and yelled loudly in gruff voices. They spoke in Egyptian, which Bill understood but Ethan did not. Ethan didn't need a translator to know what the men were all about, though. They were bandits looking to plunder whatever the two archaeologists had dug up at the Monastery of the Martyrs.
One of the bandits used a meaty hand to push Ethan backwards a few steps. Ethan stumbled but didn't fall, keeping his arms raised in order to avoid giving the guy a reason to shoot him. The bandit yelled in his face and then started to pat him down with his free hand, while the other held on tightly to his gun. Ethan saw the man's finger trained on the trigger and was therefore all too willing to comply to the search.
Bill, meanwhile, tried to explain to the men what they were doing at the monastery. Obviously, they were on a dig. No, they hadn't found anything of significance, but yes, they could look at whatever they had already found. Ethan got the feeling that the men didn't believe Bill, for a pair of them kept screaming in Bill's face. Bill seemed calm, though Ethan suspected he was anything but.
After a while, Bill was shoved to stand next to Ethan, and then both were forced to kneel on the hard, dusty ground. One man kept a gun pointed at them, while the others searched the car and walked around the necropolis for any sign of something interesting. There was a great deal of what sounded like bickering, but Ethan thought the men were simply overly excited and probably also incapable of modulating their voices.
The men threw items out of the car, making a real mess of everything Ethan and Bill had carefully packed away for the evening. Most of the items were dig tools and camping gear. Finally, the search ended, and though the men pocketed a few things, they seized very little. It was just as Bill had said, after all. He and Ethan had found nothing of significance. Most everything had already been looted or removed to museums.
