“There’s just one, er, problem with our analysis, Doctor,” said Sean.

“Well, out with it then,” barked Dr. Grey.

“You were right about the corpse, it had not been mummified in the traditional sense,” Sean said. “But we were wrong about the age.”


“You thought it was a rare example of an unembalmed body placed in an 18th-dynasty, but our analysis shows that it’s far too young to be anything like that. In fact, this body is from less than 100 years ago.”

Dr. Grey looked over at Sean. “When was the tomb excavated?”

“1924. There were rumors of a curse, since the expedition leader’s wife vanished during the excavation.”

“I’d say we just found her.”
