A rare ancient Egyptian burial cloth more than 3,000 years old is to go under the hammer in Paris Thursday, an exceptional sale of an artifact usually found only in museum collections.The shroud is made from the same type of cloth used to produce the bandages that wrap mummies and dates from the New Empire, between 1,400-1,300 B.C., a period experts consider a high point of Egyptian civilization.While the shroud itself has experts excited, the fact it was discovered at the home of Loviton has raised a few eyebrows in France as well.She was the mistress to some famous men, including poet and philosopher Paul Valery as well as U.S. billionaire Arthur Sachs.
