2,800-year-old fossilized eggs a drawcard in Nanjing Museum

A pot of ancient eggs is on display at the Nanjing Museum, Jan 7, 2017. The fossilized eggs, discovered in a clay pot during an archeological excavation in Jiangsu province, are said to date back some 2,800 years ago during the Western Zhou Dynasty (c.11th century-771 BC), becoming quite a draw in the museum. Experts said the eggs are fossilized due to their age, and have been kept as found to protect them. [Photo/VCG]
