History shows that not only people were embalmed, but also animals. When a favorite pet died, the animal would be mummified. Sometimes special coffins or grave stones were made. In some animals, the incarnation of a deity was seen. They were kept in temples, were provided with special food and sometimes they were draped with jewels. And when these animals died, they received a complex funeral.

Through a variety of geophysical sensors, the eXp 5000 metal detector can detect metallic and non-metallic treasures and artifacts. Especially the DDV system was developed to discriminate between gold, silver and iron metals.
