Egyptian cave hides royal mummies; Robert Blake and English Civil War


Text: (1) Three thousand years ago, Egyptian priests gathered up the mummies and grave goods from many royal tombs and hid them away in a secret cave.  Three thousand years later, a young boy chanced upon the tomb.  Then the looting began.  (2) The English Civil war marked the point in history when the monarchy no longer could govern without the consent of Parliament.  In 1644, the city of Taunton under the command of Robert Blake was the only place in the southwest of England held by the Parliamentarians.
