Biggest exhibition of mummies goes on display in LA


The largest exhibition of mummies ever assembled has opened in Los Angeles.

Mummies of the World features a never-before-seen collection of 150 human and animal mummies and related artefacts from five continents.

As well as displaying the mummies, which have been donated by European museums, the exhibition highlights the work done using modern scientific techniques to date and analyse the remains.

Peter Bowes went along to the California Science Center to find out more.
