    You need to collect the 11 items from the Egyptian page in the Museum. 1 of the items is the scarab you need to collect for the first quest. 1 item is the tablet you need to collect for the second quest. 5 items are the parts of the mummy you need to collect for the third quest. The rest are randomly spread throughout the level (though many are found deeper in the ground).

    The achievement will unlock as soon as you pick up the final item. I unlocked this during the campaign play of the Egypt level, collecting all the items in one play through. If for some reason you miss one in campaign play, start a new game in Freeplay mode since your digger is fully upgraded from the beginning and you can drive deep into the map quicker to find your missing item.

    After playing through the Egyptian Level several times pre-patch and post-patch, I have found out that for some reason 1 artifact was always missing for me in this level if I played it during the campaign. Therefore, I went into Freeplay and was able to dig away until I found the last item.
    .
    Post patch, I have found out that you can play all of the levels in Freeplay and get all of the colletction achievements for each level.
    .
    Therefore, go into the Egyptian Level (Freeplay) and keep digging and collecting until you get all of the artifacts (if you have completed the campaign achievement for this level it should only be 1 or 2 artifacts left in your museum under Eqyptian if they were not all obtainable in your campaign level).

    ReronIf you only need one or two items after the campaign and are looking for them on freeplay you don't need to excavate the shallow depths since there's no collectibles up high. Just dig straight down to a depth of at least 5-700 before starting to look sideways. The items I needed after finishing the campaign were found in the 1000-1500 range.
