Remember The Massive Coffin That Hasn’t Been Opened In 2000 Years? They Just Opened It

Do you remember that sinister looking sarcophagus that was discovered in Alexandria, Egypt recently? The huge black casket, unopened for more than 2,000 years, started a rampant debate on the Internet with people divided between wanting to know what was inside and fearing a "Mummy" style unleashing dark forces beyond our control.


Show full text [19659003] Well, we have news for you, friends. The good people of the Supreme Council of Antiquities dismissed the ridiculous rumors of possible curses (caused largely by the hysterical sensationalist media of the United Kingdom) and went ahead and opened because you know, science.

"The sarcophagus has been opened, but we have not been hit by a curse," said Council Secretary-General Mostafa Waziri. They found three decomposed mummies, believed to be warriors, in the sarcophagus, with one of the skulls showing damage by fracture of a sharp object. The sarcophagus was also full of red sewage, filtered by a crack in its side, which had caused the mummies to decompose.

The Council of Antiquities will now conduct tests on mummies to determine what they were. It is not believed that they belong to any royal family, no gold or silver masks, amulets or statues indicating this were found, and there is no inscription in the sarcophagus that bears their names. Scroll down to see the contents of the sarcophagus and tell us what you think in the comments.
