Some "fun" facts about the Ancient Egyptians and the way they live.  These were interesting, particularly the thoery that King Tut may have suffered a traumatic injury at the hands of a hippopatamus.  There is always more history to be discovered and it's great to learn more of the past world.

It is a sobering thought that if Cleopatra, the last ruler of an independent Egypt, could somehow be restored to life and invited to view this very fine exhibition, she would be examining works of art more ancient to her, than the time she lived in, the 1st century BC, is to us today.
