A museum mystery!

Take a close look at the video; an ancient Egyptian statue on display at a British museum is spinning! And, it’s doing it on its own!

Museum workers are baffled! They think it could be could it be moving because of vibrations from visitors or heavy road traffic outside, but they just aren't sure.

"This is difficult to believe because there are other statues on the shelf which aren’t moving whatsoever."
 
"It's certainly strange. You don't see that every day, do you?"

The statue dates back to 1800 B.C. It was found inside a mummy's tomb, and has been in the museum for 80 years.

It just started spinning when it was moved to a new spot in the museum.
