PARANORMAL: Egyptian statue comes to life on video

June 23rd, 2013 by bash 2 Comments

Curators at Manchester Museum are believed to have found the reason behind a ‘moving mummy’ which is currently spooking scientists.

The 10-inch tall relic, an offering to the Egyptian God Osiris, was found in a mummy’s tomb and has been at the museum for 80 years.

However, over recent weeks the statue has started to mysteriously spin round in its display case – as seen in the astonishing video below.

Scientists now believe there could be a ‘spiritual explanation’ for the occurence.

Campbell Price, a curator at the museum on Oxford Road, told the Daily Mail: “I noticed one day that it had turned around. I thought it was strange because it is in a case and I am the only one who has a key.

“I put it back but then the next day it had moved again. We set up a time-lapse video and, although the naked eye can’t see it, you can clearly see it rotate on the film.”

Campbell is urging members of the public to come along and take a look for themselves.

“It would be great if someone could solve the mystery,” he added.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
