I'm sure it's wrong. You should be too, unless you are superstitious. I don't believe in ancient spells that work. It's just plain silly.

Anti-bacterial spray! I was joking, people. Gosh. Here's a hint: When I'm joking, I normally put a "LOLZ" or a "LOL" after it. :roll: Oi, yesu!

Anyone Polish out there? If you are, and you know some Polish, you know what that means. It's nothing bad, mods. :wink:

So many people in my class are convinced that there is such thing as a curse on Kind Tut. Do you think it is true?


There was no curse on King Tut. The rumour had it that a curse was put over the tomb to effect anyone who tried to steal things from it, and then when Howard Carter et al entered the tomb in 1922 his canary died, and (I think) 11 of the workers also died within the next 7 years.

However, When Carter entered the tomb many of the small pieces of treasure and gold had already been stolen, probably by the people who initially built the tomb as they would know the location and layout enough to precisely drill into the ground to access at the key points.

This would indicate to me that any curse placed on the tomb would take effect on the inital robbers and not on Carter's team. Seeing as how we don't know exactly when the tomb was first robbed, or who by, we cannot determine if a curse took effect and must, therefore, put the death of Carter's team and canary down to unfortunate coincidence placed on the back of paranoia.

This site's a bit kiddy, but it gives some explanations to the mummy's curse rumours. It's definately worth checking out:
