Hawass Perpetuates Mummy's Curse Myth
Zahi Hawass was video'd at the CT scan of Tutankhamun's mummy, saying that it would be unwise to dismiss the idea of the curse that was supposed to have haunted the original finders of the tomb. He cited a number of minor misfortunes including the scanner being offline for nearly two hours, and the wind blowing up the Valley. A number of studies into the curse have, however, gone to some lengths to prove that curse is nothing but a myth. This article contains some more descriptions of the CT scan of the mummy, and has a photograph of Hawass and some of the CT screen with the mummy in the tomb.
