Ancient Egyptian relic mysteriously moves by itself

An ancient Egyptian relic has left bosses puzzled after appearing to rotate 180 degrees by itself in its display case.

The 10-inch tall statue of Neb-Sanu, dating back to 1800 BC, was found in a mummy's tomb and has been at Manchester Museum for 80 years.

Experts caught the movement of the statue in a time-lapse video. The relic apparently moves throughout the day, but remains still in the night.

Campbell Price, an Egyptologist at the museum, suggested that the museum may have been struck by a curse, according to the Manchester Evening News.

But he said that Professor Brian Cox, who teaches physics at the university believed it to be from "subtle vibrations" from "differential friction".
