$1mn-mummy sold in New York

"While many New Yorkers were hunting for bargains in the pre-Christmas sales Thursday, one anonymous buyer opted for a more unusual purchase, picking up a 3,000-year-old mummy at auction. The unnamed, private collector paid $1.1 million for the ancient Egyptian sarcophagus, believed to date from 990 to 940 BC. . . . Christie's did not say what the unidentified buyer intended to do with his new purchase."
Sorry Kat - I know how you feel about this one!
