≡ 7 Deadliest Cases Of Mummy Curses ➤ Brain Berries

Unearthing Tutankhamun’s tomb became one of the most important discoveries in archeology, but the events that followed this revelation forced the world to switch attention from science to the supernatural. On November 4, 1922, archaeologist Howard Carter and his team discovered in the Valley of the Kings, where the pharaoh’s grave was hidden for thousands of years, practically untouched by grave robbers. Not to spoil anything, but things didn’t quite turn out as well as everyone expected, resulting in the mysterious death of the expedition’s patron.

The recent history is filled with mysterious deaths seemingly caused by the mummy’s curse, so let’s take a peek inside this killer sarcophagus.

1. Tutankhamun’s Curse (1922)

After Howard Carter discovered King Tut’s burial chamber, he immediately contacted his patron, Lord Carnarvon, to tell him the good news. The British aristocrat rejoiced and immediately wanted to open the sarcophagus. Who could have known that four months later, Lord Carnarvon would die of a single mosquito bite? Here’s the freaky part, there was a warning on Tut’s tomb that read: “Death shall come on swift wings to those who disturb the King’s peace.” Of course, this could have been a coincidence, but who can say for sure?

2. The Unlucky Thief (2007)

There are many uncertain parts of this story, but it probably went something like this: while visiting Egypt, a German thief sees this amazing relic on display and decides to get stupidly rich. He steals the artifact and smuggles it back to Germany. So far, so good. For some reason, he can’t sell it right away and keeps it hidden. Time flies by, and the thief starts noticing that everyone around him was suffering, including the man himself. Shortly after, he got a fever, which resulted in paralysis and swift death. The mystical artifact was sent back to Egypt by a family member with a note containing an apology. Hopefully, the curse had ended with that.

3. King Tut’s Deadly Hand

Sir Archibald Reid was not an archaeologist, nor was he anywhere near the mummified remains of the infamous Egyptian pharaoh. Well, maybe except for the mummy’s dried out hand. Reid was a radiologist who was sent the severed body part for X-ray testing. Sadly, in less than 24 hours after unwrapping his last gift, he got gravely sick and kicked the bucket a week later, becoming yet another victim of Tut’s curse.
