Cruising Through History: The Curse of King Tut

The Curse of King Tut, also known as the Curse of the Pharaohs, is a superstition suggesting anyone who disturbs the mummy of an ancient Egyptian pharaoh, specifically that of King Tutankhamun, would suffer a curse that would ultimately lead to their death. The legend originated in 1922 when a team of archaeologists led by Howard Carter discovered King Tut's tomb in the Valley of the Kings in Egypt. The tomb's discovery was accompanied by a series of unusual events, including the death of several people involved in the expedition.

The legend of the Curse of King Tut has since become one of the most famous and enduring tales of the paranormal. Even though no scientific evidence supports the idea of a curse, the story has continued to capture the public imagination. Many people believe that the curse is a warning from the ancient past about the dangers of disturbing the resting place of the dead, while others dismiss it as a myth.

In the podcast, Scott and Zander explore this myth, the circumstances surrounding these mysterious deaths, and how the public continues to be fascinated by King Tut and his supposed curse.
