Following the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb by Norfolk explorer Howard Carter in 1922, tales of mummies’ curses had become very popular. Egypt’s Valley of the Kings and various museums were central to these tales. However, some twenty years or so before Carter’s find, a mummy caused quite More… a stink - in Great Yarmouth! Text and animated versions of the myths and legends are provided, as well as a selection of photographs and pictures to supplement the text (a sample are attached) and background information.
