Rubber Chicken Mummy Missing from King Tut's Tomb
Yesterday I checked out the King Tut Exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario.
It was great! Not only did I see King Tut’s stuff, I also learned a lot about his relatives and saw some of their belongings.
Those Egyptians were big on the whole after-life thing. They even mummified their beloved pets. Search as I could, I didn’t find any mummified chicken information.
In the past, Egyptologists believed that King Tut was murdered but just recently, through modern technology they found that he probably died of Malaria.
It’s been rumoured that there was a curse on King Tut’s tomb. Supposedly an inscription in the tomb said “Death will slay with his wings whoever disturbs the peace of the pharaoh”.
