as we find the bodies of the old pharaohs, we find treasures and goods, where does that go?

I'm in love with Tut's tomb, and how Carter and his assitent died by a mosquitoe's disease after reading the curse!

When Tut's tomb was found, there was supposedly a curse that was found that doomed all those who "invaded" the tomb to a vioent or unpleasant death. Since that time, everyone remotely involved with the opening of the tomb (except Carter himself!) has died--usually just of old age or completely natual causes---and that death has been classified as a result of the "curse".
The curse did not exist, by the way--it was a complete fabrication of a reporter drumming up interest.But all sorts of mysertious and supernateralthings have happened because of the "curse".

Nooooo....

LORD CARNARVAN died from the mosquito bite, Howard Carter was the only one to die peacefully in, I think, 1938. Somewhere around there. Tut LIKED Carter. The others were just...well...not worthy? :lol:

The original "curse" was just a figment of a reporter's imagination
It was reported to have been found on papyrus--there was NO papyrus in the tomb, or fund carved on the lintel of the tomb--there was NO caving on the lintel.
As far as I know, the curse said nothing about dying from a misquito bite, in fact, it made no referrence to any insect, other than supposedly say "Death enters on swift wings...".
There were more than 3 excavators at work in the tomb. In fact, most of the known Egyptologists of the day were more or less involved.
The curse was carried to the extreme--even, as I recall, being at fault for the suicide of an elderly man in England who was upset at the death of his son--who happened to be in the crowd that cultered outside the tomb! A bit of a reach!
Although much has been printed and said exposing the so-called curse as a hoax, some 75 years later the guillable are still taken in by it.
