Special statue in Manchester - level 2
Curators at the Manchester Museum noticed something weird. A 4,000 year-old Egyptian statue rotated.
Scientists wanted to find out the reason for this. They set up a camera and something that measured vibrations. The camera captured the statue over a long period of time. When the scientistss had pictures, they could saw it moving.
It turned out that the statue rotates during the busiest hours of the day, especially around 6 and 7 o’clock in the morning and 6 o’clock in the evening. The statue rotates because of vibration and at these times, the vibrations are the strongest.
Difficult words: curator (person who works at a museum), weird (strange), turn out (be discovered).
