1922 discoveryCarter Breaches Entrance to Tutankhamun's Tomb (1922)
When Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon entered the tomb of the Egyptian King Tutankhamun, they were the first people to do so in 3,000 years. The tomb was then the best preserved and most intact pharaonic tomb ever found in the Valley of the Kings. In order to remove King Tut's jewelry and amulets, Carter's team dissected the mummy, severing the ancient king's arms, legs, and head in the process. Later, the deaths of several of Carter's team members invited speculation about what ancient curse?
There's always speculation that the deaths of those individuals were the cause of a curse. If you ask me I think it was all in their head and they found themselves being too cautious and any little thing that came up that would be considerd dangerous they probably saw as a sign of the curse. They probably had themselves so tight in security that something as simple as driving could throw them off.
