If you've got any old garden gnome or pink flamingo statutes in your shed, before throwing them out you should check the manufacturer's date to see if they were made in, you know, 3,000 B.C.:

A pair of carved stone statues used as garden ornaments have sold for more than ยฃ195,000 ($265,510) after it was revealed that they were ancient Egyptian relics dating back thousands of years, an auction house has said.

The artifacts were acquired from a garden in Sudbury, Suffolk, in eastern England.

Mander Auctioneers, which handled the sale, said they were contacted by a family looking to get rid of items from their old house before moving home.

Listen, you know how it goes: You're looking to declutter the homestead, you want to get rid of those chunky old statutes in the garden, and suddenly you discover they were produced during the Thinite Period about a bajillion years ago. It happens to everyone!

The lesson being: Don't toss that old 10-speed bicycle in your garage, it might have belonged to Emperor Taizong!
