Mrs. Elizabeth Hurst, of the Nursery Tavern, Ecclesall road, Sheffield, who bought an Egyptian mummy at an auction last week, scorns talk of a curse upon those who tamper with Egyptian relics. She is going to have the mummy opened, to discover what is inside the case.
An Egyptologist, living at Pitsmoor, will examine it first.
"Nothing unusual has happened since I bought the mummy" she said last night, "and I am sure that nothing will."
16 June 1938
I would love to know who the Egyptologist was and what they found...can anyone shed light on this?
