Episode 88: The Mummy’s Curse: Pharaoh Tutankhamun’s Gold

Spread the love

This week Nat leads Aly down a rabbit hole about Ancient Egyptian curses! Even before humans could translate the hieroglyphs on ancient Egyptian tombs, rumors existed that curses were written on the entrance to a Pharaoh’s final resting place. The most famous of ancient Egyptian curses was enacted in 1922 after the discovery of King Tutankhamen’s 3,300 year old sealed tomb. 9 of the 52 people present at the tomb’s opening ended up dying of sudden illness or freak accidents immediately following the opening of the tomb. Join us on this haunted adventure through the past, if you dare!
