Saw some shots on the news on the wonderful procession that Egypt arranged when they moved all their ancient Mummies, etc to the new museum. What a brillaint spectacle. So nice to see something like this, at present.

So much for those that say only UK can organise and run such brilliant public events. I really do hope we will see a full film of this parade on tv sometime soon.

It was fantastic Franbern we watched it as well. Something really uplifting to see when we all feel a bit down.

Looked fantastic! some of the world's greatest antiquities. Definitely invoked that often wrongly word "awesome"

should have typed "wrongly used"

Yes the procession looked wonderful. I only saw a snippet but I’ll try to find it to watch again.

As I watched it, I couldn't help thinking that they had indeed attained an Afterlife; albeit not what they envisaged but still a continuation of sorts.

Here’s a link, 30 second advert to endure, sorry.

There are several videos of this on YouTube

Who says that ‘only the UK can organise and run brilliant public events’ ? !
Egypt was doing that long before any country in Europe in any case.
The Cairo Museum is fantastic, and well worth a visit.

I hope there is a longer version of this event available. Amazing achievement. We went to see the exhibits in the Cairo museum but would love to visit this new museum.

Go to YouTube, search 'Egypt parade of mummies', there are several videos. Some are over 2 hours long!
