Egypt Relocates 22 Royal Mummies, Kings And Queens To National Museum In Style by Explorers(m): 9:30pm On Apr 03
* 22 Kings and Queens that lived around 3,000 years ago were transported in 22 Golden trucks and Chariots to a new resting place.


Egypt held a spectacular parade to transport 22 mummies of its most famous pharaohs from central Cairo to their new resting place at the National Museum of Egyypt Civilization opened in 2017.


The ceremony snaked along the Nile corniche from the Egyptian Museum overlooking Tahrir Square to the newly opened National Museum of Egyptian Civilization in Fustat, Cairo, where Egypt's first Islamic capital was located.

The mummies, 18 pharaohs and four other royals were transported in climate-controlled cases loaded onto Golden trucks decorated with wings and pharaonic design for the hour-long journey from their previous home in the older, Egyptian Museum.

They were originally buried around 3,000 years ago in secret tombs in the Valley of Kings and the nearby Deir el-Bahri site. Both areas are near the southern city of Luxor. The tombs were first excavated in the 19th century.

The mummified remains of 22 ancient Egyptian kings and queens who died more than 3,000 years ago.

The kings and queens reigned during the 17th through 20th dynasties of ancient Egypt, which is 3,500 to 3,100 years ago, and a majority of them were discovered in two archaeological excavations in the late 1880s. Pictured is one of the sites in Luxor in the 1880s

King Seti I, who died in 1279 BC, also joined the procession.

He is known for bringing prosperity to Egypt during his reign, following his father's two years of ruling.

Maybe I don't know anything at all.

But I think they should have left those things in their original resting places. sad

They just tampered with history by moving them to new locations.

Now having said that... splendid parade this was.

*** Do not forget something. This is for tourism. You might be thinking why they have spent so much. But you just have to spend money to make even more money.

Watch how tourists flock to the new museum the moment life returns to normal after the global pandemic.

Talk about thinking long term.

Not cool. Valley of the Kings is more suitable for them since it shows royalty rather than moving them to a museum as if they are object of entertainment for the growing masses.

How would the president feel, if his father and grandparents are excavated from where they are buried and displayed in the museum? Anyway, Explorer boss, try and do little writeup on this two great women:

Cleopatra (the last emperor of Egypt)

Queen Nefetiti (the unknown most beautiful Queen ever to come out of Egypt).
