REAL LIFE TOMB RAIDERS UNCOVER TOMB

[ October 25th 2006 ]

Real-life tomb raiders have led archaeologists to the graves of three royal dentists, protected by a curse and hidden in the desert sands for thousands of years in the shadow of Egypt's most ancient pyramid, according to Associated Press.

The thieves were using the cover of night to secretly excavate an area near Step Pyramid of King Djoser - believed to be Egypt's oldest pyramid - when authorities apprehended them.

Archaeologists were then brought in and discovered the tombs, one of which included an inscription warning that anyone who violated the sanctity of the grave would be eaten by a crocodile and a snake.

According to Associated Press, the tombs - which did not contain their mummies - were built of mud-brick and limestone, not the pure limestone preferred by ancient Egypt's upper class.
