Mummy, I'm Home!

The remains of a mummy thought to belong to a queen who ruled 4,300 years ago have been discovered in Egypt.

Archaeologists discovered the body of Queen Seshestet in a pyramid in Saqqara.

The Queen’s name wasn't with her remains, but Egypt's top archaeologist Zahi Hawass said: "All the signs indicate that she is Seshestet.”

Experts believe Queen Seshestet ruled Egypt for 11 years and was one of only a few female pharaohs.


Mr. Hawass said it took five hours to open the sarcophagus – a special coffin made of stone – where the remains were found wrapped in linen, pottery and gold wrappings. All the valuables that are usually placed inside a pharaoh’s sarcophagus had already been stolen by grave robbers.

I'd vote out - it costs us £350 million a week. Think of how much more money we'd have to spend on schools and the NHS. It's enough to build a new NHS hospital every week. Less than half of this is given back - and we have no say whatsoever where this money goes. Though of course, millions are spent on limos and expenses for Euro MPs.  We'd be in charge of our borders. We can control who comes in and who goes out, which is generally safer, and we won't be overruled by EU judges. Worried about jobs? The EU stops us from signing our own trade deals with countries like Australia, or growing economies like China or Brazil. I personally don't think there'd be an huge loss of jobs, but if jobs are lost, they can quickly be recovered through these new trade deals, and help us thrive economically.

I'm surprised it didn't take you 40 days and 40 nights to write all that.
