Ya Mummy!

A 10-year-old boy has discovered what might be an ancient Egyptian mummy in his Germany!

When we venture into our attics, we usually just find Pogs and embarrassing school photos. A 10-year-old German boy, however, discovered what is reported to be an ancient Egyptian mummy hidden in the corner of his grandmother's attic, according to The Telegraph.

The mummy which was found by Alexander Kettler was inside a sarcophagus and covered with heiroglyphics in the flat in Diepholz, Germany. An old Halloween prank or a legit relic? Well, Alexander's father Lutz Wolfgang Kettler suggests it might be real as his own father "acquired a chest while travelling in North Africa in the 50's" and it was transported back to Germany. The mysterious find will be taken to Berlin for an X-ray.
