In the late 1800's several thousand mummies were discovered in Egypt in the Valley of the Kings. An American investor spent several thousand dollars buying them snd having them shipped to America. He really thought that everyone would want a mummie in their home. No one did. He ended up selling the linen wrappings to a paper company. The paper company used the brown linen to make wrapping paper for butcher shops.
True story.

Mummies were also used as kindling in locomotives after they were unwrapped at Victorian Era parties. You can look it up online. Mummy unwrapping parties.
