The tomb of the pharaoh Tutankhamun was one of the most magnificent of monuments, and one of the richest of tombs since it was filled with priceless treasures. However,it was believed that anyone who disturbed the king's final resting place would be cursed. In fact the tomb contained these lines:'death shall come on swift wings to him who disturbs peace of the king'.
In the year 1922,Howard Carter,an English archaeologist,discovered the burial site of king Tutankhamen in the valley of kings. One of the first victims of the warning written on the tomb's walls was lord carnarvon. He was one of the first persons to enter the tomb,and soon afterwards,he was dead-of an infected mosquito bite! At the same instant all the lights in Cairo,the capital of egypt, went out and the city was plunged into darkness. The morning that lord Carnarvon died, it was reported that his dog began to howl, and then all of a sudden ,it dropped dead too!
Other mysterious things began to occur. Many of the archaeologists that entered the tomb got ill, and eventually died. It is recorded that during the 1920's, more than two dozen of these men died shortly after enttering king Tut's tomb. This was the beginning of the curse of king Tut.
To many, the curse ok king Tut is still a mystery, to others it is just superstition. They point out that Carter himself, who was the first to enter the tomb,survived untill March 1939 just short of his 65th birthday, and nearly 17 years after entering the tomb-about a decade of which was spent working in the tomb itself.
Does this curse truly exist, or at least did it exist? What do you think..
If it did how can it be created
