Tombs of Ancient Egypt. Ancient Egypt is known for its magnificent and beautiful tombs. The most well known are within the pyramids in the Valley of the Kings or the tombs from the Age of the Pyramids (during the Old Kingdom, to B.C. spanning from 3 rd to 6 th Dynasty). While these elaborate tombs were quite ornate, the bodies of people from the lower castes met with humbler ends. The logic of the little grey cells take on one of Agatha Christie’s favourite themes, the powers of ancient Egypt, this time in the form of a curse on those who excavated a Pharaoh’s tomb. The story was first published as a book in the collection Poirot Investigates, , by Bodley Head. The Egyptians also painted spells from the Book of the Dead around the tomb. This was a book of spells that Egyptians believed helped people pass in to the afterlife. The curse of the pharaohs is an alleged curse believed by some to be cast upon any person who disturbs the mummy of an Ancient Egyptian person, especially a pharaoh. This curse, which does not differentiate between thieves and archaeologists, allegedly can cause bad luck, illness or death.
