She's over 3,300 years old and only 52 cm tall and she's worth over a million pounds. Until now she's never been seen in public. Recently Bolton Museum, with the help of a National Lottery grant, have been able to purchase a unique headless statuette of what is believed to be one of the Egyptian Queen Nefertiti's daughters.

Sheila talks to Angela Robson, the Bolton Museum's keeper of Egyptology.
The statue will be part of the Saved! exhibition at London's Hayward Gallery from 23 October. From next January it will be on display at the Bolton Museum.
