Open And Shut Case

Sometimes there are stories of the past in academic etc. and related publications that could almost be headline material for the tabloid press. They do use these in some cases. For example Mail Online borrows heavily from Science Daily for some of the shock horror content.

This from Forbes via Archaeology Today has a special teeth gritting effect. It is about the curse of the mummy, so favoured by writers of the past in some of the lurid tales about that happens when the academic who opens up the tomb has a close look at the remains within.

There is it seems a rational scientific explanation. So end of story, perhaps, that is. So next time you go digging for gold and silver from the graves of those long gone beware. Stick to the financial markets.
