In this weeks episode, Sally and I don our sceptic hats and delve into 1920s Egypt to dig up the story of Tutankhamun and the crazy publicity storm that followed Howard Carter after his uncovering of the tomb.
Wikipedia – Wiki on tomb KV62, the designation for Tutankhamun’s tomb site.
The Mummy’s Curse: The True Story of a Dark Fantasy – Written by Roger Luckhurst and published by Oxford University Press (2012) a solid book about the cultural history of Egyptian pharaoh curses. Starts with Tutankhamun and then delves much deeper into the cultural aspects of it all.
