. Egypt mummies pass through Cairo in ancient rulers’ parade « JO LEE MAGAZINE

BBC NEWS/Egyptians have been witnessing a historic procession of their country’s ancient rulers through the capital, Cairo.

The lavish, multimillion-dollar spectacle saw 22 mummies – 18 kings and four queens – transported from the peach-coloured, neo-classical Egyptian Museum to their new resting place 5km (three miles) away.

With tight security arrangements befitting their royal blood and status as national treasures, the mummies were relocated to the new National Museum of Egyptian Civilisation in what is called The Pharaohs’ Golden Parade.
