Yes saw it this afternoon but sadly, not the SETI we are looking for.
SETI in the form of the sarcophagus of pharoah SETI 1 is in the Crypt of the Sir John Soane museum in LIncoln's Inn Fields behind Holborn underground station. Who was Sir John Soane? Very famous architect who built the Bank of England building among others.
Amazing collection of stuff where hardly any of it is labelled [http://www.soane.org/url][/url]

Yes Chris, very good choice. Next time I go there I will have a guided tour. For a laugh, I might even buy some scented moustache wax for my brother for Christmas!

Well, fess up time, my avatar is Seti II not Seti I, but it is still the same genre. I thought that a couple of pedantics might have homed in. Personally I'm fascinated by ancient Egypt there is more to that than meets the eye.

Becomes a reminder of this as well.

What a coincidence.

I'd love to one day :-)

Whether the shroud is genuinely 2000 years old and was a burial cloth, really matters not. The devout will still worship it as a symbol of their belief.
