Egypt unveils renovated wing of oldest museum with 113 spells from Book of Dead

Egypt often publicly touts ancient discoveries to attract more tourists, a major source of foreign currency for the cash-strapped North African country. Waziry Papyrus, the centerpiece of unveiling, contains around 113 spells from the Book of the Dead.

A section of the 16-meter long papyrus named Waziri-1 Papyrus containing inscriptions from the Book of the Dead dating back to 50 BC, is displayed at the Egyptian museum in Cairo, Egypt. Egypt's ministry of tourism and antiquities unveiled a renovated wing within its 120-year-old museum, the first stage of a broader replenishment program for the palatial building.
