Six archaeologists have died mysteriously shortly after they had opened an ancient Egyptian coffin, according to a documentary on Netflix.
Locals believe the curse of the pharaoh will punish the person who opens the tomb of a Pharaoh.
In graves especially of the kings of the Old Kingdom have been found inscriptions that refer to the horrible fate that would affect tomb robbers when entering the tombs.
The curse would cause bad luck, illness or even death.
Since the mid-20th century, historians say that the curse is real. They refer to unexplainable events that sometimes occur after tombs are opened.
For years, pharaohs were buried in the Valley of the Kings on the Nile, in which 64 tombs are now open.
The documentary “Top 10 Secrets and Mysteries” reveals what happened after a tomb was opened.
The tomb of Tutankhamun was discovered in 1922. Shortly after the discovery mysterious deaths were reported among archaeologists who found the tomb.
Of the 12 people who attended the opening of the sarcophagus, six died within a few months under mysterious circumstances.
Some researchers reported very vivid dreams in which they were chased by the mummies after opening the tombs.
