Mummies Are Coming

No nothing about a new movie. This is all about the real thing – mummies. Amazing as it might seem after all these years archaeologists digging around in Egypt have found a tomb with three mummies. The tomb is more than 3,500 years old and contains the mummified bodies of a woman and her two sons. They have found out that this tomb belonged to a royal goldsmith named Amenemhat so it is thought that the woman was his wife.

There is a statue of the goldsmith sitting beside the woman. This tomb is near the city of Luxor on the River Nile. Tests have revealed that the woman was about 50 years old when she passed on and she died from a bone disease. What is really surprising is that her two sons were in their 20s and 30s so it truly is a wonder why they died. All of these mummified bodies were in great condition.

The site containing Amenemhat’s tomb has a courtyard and two burial shafts. Apparently the city of Luxor has one-third of the world’s ancient monuments. They are hoping that these new discoveries in October 2019 will help Egypt with tourism since visitors will be interested to see the newly discovered mummies. They are hoping to find more. As far as I know, nothing about mummy curses has been mentioned since mostly I believe that is something Hollywood has made popular. So you can safely travel to view these mummies.
