Mummies on the loose at Field Museum

The Field Museum in Chicago is opening its vaults this month to show off some very special mummies.

Many of the more than 20 mummies from Egypt and Peru that will be featured in a new exhibit, Opening the Vaults: Mummies, have not been on display since the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893.

The oldest mummy is 7,000 years old.
