Egyptian conservators clean a female mummy dated to Pharaonic late period, (712-323 BC), in the conservation center of Egypt's Grand museum under construction, just outside Cairo, Egypt, Monday, March 17, 2014. Egypt's antiquities minister says construction has begun on the main hall of a massive new museum by the Pyramids, the final phase of a complex that's intended to house 100,000 ancient artifacts including King Tutankhamun's mummy.
