This is unbelievable, huh? I can only imagine the facts that have been erased forever. In fact, I often wonder how many royal mummies were destroyed in the process. To think we will never know what has been taken or damaged is kind of scary. I am happy we have standardized rules . Now many generations can learn about Ancient Egyptian mummies and the culture of Egypt without damaging the mummy.
It's funny because Howard Carter also damaged the mummy of King Tut. He broke it into many pieces while trying to find jewels and gold. It's a shame as his mummy is now in pieces. Nonetheless, I do understand the fascination associated with royal treasure. In fact, I would not mind if i had a few pieces for me! He he he
Thank God we have new technology that can unwrap a mummy without destroying it. It's probably even better as now we have digital scans that will forever preserve each mummy forever. I hope one day all these digital scans will be available online so many people can enjoy them!
