Rare fragments of the Book of the Dead discovered

Missing pieces of a rare ancient manuscript has been unveiled in the Queensland Museum.  The search for the missing pieces of a Book of the Dead has lasted over 100 years but the mystery has been solved by a visiting Egyptologist.  Dr John Taylor, who was in Brisbane as part of the opening of the new mummy exhibition, made the discovery.  Other fragments of the artefact are in the British Museum, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
