Egypt finds suggest ancient royal funeral

A find in Egypt of a wooden statue of a king, a chapel and animal mummies suggests ritual activity associated with the great Egyptian gods, researchers say.

Archaeologists from the University of Toronto said the items and evidence of a monumental building were found in Abydos, Egypt in June and July 2011.
The wooden statue may represent the female king Hatshepsut, often portrayed as male in stone because the Egyptian pharaoh was understood to be son of the god Amon-Re.
