We're headed WAY back in time to Ancient Egypt to discuss the life and death of the most famous Egyptian pharaoh, King Tutankhamen. Despite the fact that the "Boy King" was in power for a mere decade, the finding of his burial site influenced modern culture in ways you can only imagine. But this isn't really a history podcast...
What we're really doing hanging out with the major players in the 18th Dynasty of Ancient Egypt is because of the alleged Mummy's Curse. In the 1920s when archaeologists and Egypt enthusiasts, Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon, and the people present mysteriously started dying, word of the Curse of the Pharaohs spread like wildfire.
On this episode of The Lady Dicks, the #DickSquad is digging into life in King Tut's crew, inscriptions written on the tombs of Egyptian royals, who died from the alleged curse and whether or not it's real. Oh, and we're also travelling to the Valley of the Kings and telling you about a few of the ghosts that lurk around the area. Don't miss the bad travel reviews, terrible name pronunciations and lots of incest talk (#SorryNotSorry, it's Ancient Egypt...).
The Lady Dicks dick-tect history, mystery and paranormal tales from around the world. Hailing from Canada, Tae, Nikki and Andrea are a terribly cheesy comedic trio that covers some of life’s biggest mysteries and peskiest ghosts.
