Ancient Egypt and the Curse of Tutankhamen
Egypt is one of the most mysterious territories in the world, in fact, that is one of the reasons why it is so visited in addition to the pyramids and mummies that have been discovered over the years. It is no secret to anyone that the ancient Egyptians were endowed with supreme intelligence and are remembered as one of the most advanced civilizations on the planet. Now, behind all these wonders, there are many legends and myths that have no scientific explanation.
Archaeologists have studied the pyramids of Egypt, the mummies that have been found and the treasures found in the vicinity of the necropolis, however, they still cannot find adequate answers to their mysteries, including the curse of the tomb of Tutankhamen and the degree of impact and scope it had. According to the few surviving witnesses, something horrible was written on the Pharaoh’s sarcophagus and that took the lives of the people who dared to open it despite the warnings.
Ancient Egyptian civilization had traps in the pyramids
It is not yet known exactly what kind of chemicals the ancient Egyptians left in the pyramids and Pharaoh’s tomb, but the truth is that something extremely frightening was written on Tutankhamun’s coffin, a curse that warned people that the misfortunes would come into the life of anyone who disturbed the King’s rest. In 1922 it was discovered that the tomb was empty and from there the deaths in the pyramids multiplied.
One of the theories most accepted by archaeologists is that the ancient Egyptians placed poison spores in the sarcophagus and on the walls of the king’s chamber to kill anyone who disturbed the Pharaoh, so more than 22 people who were present at the opening of the necropolis died, including Howard Carter.
