  Egyptian Mummies in the British Museum
by easyoar

If you haven't had the chance to go to Egypt and see some of the Egyptian Mummies there, then the British museum is a great place to see some. Quite a few are very impressive, and there are even mummies of animal such as cats and bulls! These animals were preserved as they were believed to have sacred properties.

Of course they don't quite rival things like the treasures of King Tutankhamen, and there is nothing with that huge amount of gold to rival his death mask (they can be seen in the Cairo Museum), but they are very impressive nevertheless. Most of the stuff predates Christ (i.e. it is BC, NOT AD).
