The Egyptian Museum

Post by DJKeefy »

Cairo's Museum of Egyptian Antiquities boasts 120,000 items - the world's largest collection of Pharaonic antiquities, including 27 mummies of the Royal Cache and the treasures of King Tutankhamen. in ancient Egypt, the pharaohs and their retinue were not the only ones to consign their bodies to mummification after death. Mummification was chosen by everyone who could afford it, because ancient Egyptians believed the process was the path to eternal life. They also mummified animals by the millions: falcons, baboons, crocodiles, and many other creatures - pushing some species to the brink of extinction. Why? The secret is revealed in the premiere broadcast of Museum Secrets: Inside the Egyptian Museum.
