Do you know King Tutankhamen? He was a famous king of acient Egypt and he slept in the Egyptian desert.
In 1922, Howard Carter discovered King Tut`s mummified body. It was the start of the rumor that people associated with the King Tut died.
Why the rumor happend? Actually, in 1923, Lord George Herbert Carnarvon suddenly died in Cairo. He was a Carter`s partner who was best
known as helping to finance the excavation. And other people associated with the expedition also died strangely. The locals thought the cause
of their`s death was the curse by King Tut`s anger. Because the locals know people lived in acient Egypt believe that wrapping up Egyptian
kings is very important.
But recently, an important thing was discovered.
Bacteria on the wall of the King Tut might have caused the curse.
For example, the British medical Journal announced the results that people who
had entered the tomb lived an average of 20.8 years after being exposed to the tomb
dust . But people who not exposed to tomb lived 28.9 years. In short, anyone who entered the tomb breathed in microscopic spores floating in the air.
In spite of the results, Howard Carter lived for another 16 years , dying of cancer in 1939.
Which do you believe the rumor or the results?
