The curse of Tutankhamun enthralled the world – and inspired many storytellers, writes Oliver Pfeiffer.

“It’s a fairly gruesome process that would’ve involved removal of the brain through the nose. They would then have removed the internal organs - the viscera,” says John J Johnson of the Egypt Exploration Society, describing the intricate process of ancient Egyptian mummification. "The body would then be washed and covered in oils.”
