Can vaguely remember the Mummy on display at Buckle St. Wellington, but then I was not so interested in the history off it then, as I am now, and who donated it to the nation. Thank you Charles Rooking Carter, who Carterton is named after. Only sorry the actual Mummy is not on display to the public anymore, but then, the next best thing, was to visit the wonderful Beyond the Tomb Exhibition. Held at Te Papa.
For Carterton's 150th Anniversary this year, I promoted the Mummy on a sandwich board. Very pleased that Te Papa were able to assist me the other year with all the information I needed, so when down at Te Papa I bought post cards as well.. would dearly love to be able to actually view the Mummy, but NZ regulations stops the public from displaying dead bodies, but to me this is different, its history.
