A SPECIAL GUEST ARRIVED IN SPOKANE TODAY...
SHE'S 23-HUNDRED YEARS OLD.
AND WANTS YOU TO VISIT HER.
SHE'S TOURING THE U-S AND WILL BE IN THE LILAC CITY
FOR THE NEXT FEW MONTHS.
KXLY4'S DREW REEVES GOT UP AND PERSONAL WITH THE MUMMY
TODAY TO LEARN MORE ABOUT HER INCREDIBE STORY.
OKAY COME WITH ME.
IT'S BEEN A LONG JOURNEY FOR THE NEWEST MEMBER OF
THE MUSEUM OF ARTS AND CULTURE.
THE STAR OF THE "LOST EGYPT
MIMI LEVEQUE/CONSERVATOR OF OBJECTS
:39 - :56
When we looked at the coffin and realized there was
no information about her name, and no information
about her family or anything, it's likely that she
was then buried as an anonymous person.
That she was given a very nice burial, but not one
that was specific to her.
MIMI LEVEQUE HAS BEEN WORKING WITH ANNIE SINCE 2009.
SHE SAYS WHEN THE MUMMY FIRST ARRIVED.
THEY HAD ONLY TWO WEEKS FOR RESTORATION WORK.
ANNIE HAS SINCE BEEN TRAVELING THE U-S TO DELIGHT
AND EDUCATE PEOPLE.
AND A LOT OF WORK GOES INTO MAKING SURE ANNIE DOESN'T
TAKE ON ANY DAMAGE.
:12 - :18
We've done the best we possibly can to allow the public
to see her, and protect her at the same time.
MIMI SAYS AFTER WORKING WITH ANNIE FOR SO LONG.
IT'S HARD NOT TO GET ATTACHED.
WHICH MAKES ALL THE HARD WORK WORTH IT.
:29 - :40
She's an individual.
This is a person.
This is someone who had hopes and fears and loves,
and her family loved her.
I get attached to all the mummies I work with, and
