The curse of the pharaohs represents the belief according to which any individual that will disturb the mummies of the pharaohs of the ancient Egypt is cursed and he or she will die in a short time. The curses are written on numerous pharaohs  tombs or around them, to stop people to enter. The death of some members of the team that opened the Tutankhamun`s tomb in 1922 really attract the attention of the people. One of those people was bitten by a mosquito and died later, when he cut the bite I a shaving accident. The poisoning of his blood was the result of the infection. Of course, many of those who gave a hand of help to the discovery of tombs or just visited the tombs lived a long and healthy life; only 8 people from 58 that were witness to the opening of the Tutankhamun`s sarcophagus and tomb died in a dozen years. There are also theories about the existence in the tombs of the fungus which is deadly and which could have grown inside the tombs and released when the tombs were opened. According to other theories, the mold was placed in the tombs deliberately in the tombs as a punishment for the robbers of the graves. The death of the people involved in the discovery of the Tutankhamun`s tomb could have died because of the curse that is associated with him and which sounds like this: ‘Death shall come on swift wings to him who disturbs the peace of the King’. In the old tombs can be some pathogens but it` s not for sure if these dangerous materials were the cause of the death. Today, the modern archeologists use protective clothing when they open the burial chambers.
