GUADALUPE, Calif. (AP) — Archaeologists working in sand dunes on the central California coast have dug up an intact plaster sphinx (above) that was part of an
Egyptian movie set built more than 90 years ago for Cecil B. DeMille’s silent film
epic "The Ten  Commandments” (1923).

The 300-pound sphinx is the second recovered from the Guadalupe-Nipomo
Dunes.
