Transcript of Golden Mummies vs. Secret Mummies

Golden Mummies vs. Secret Mummies
The Secret Mummy Caves were used to hide mummies because of tomb robbers in a time of financial need.
Egyptian History and Society
The secret Mummy Cave revealed that Egypt because of the drought and fighting between rival political factions was bringing Egypt to a state of anarchy. The society broke down, and the population was facing poverty and famine. The need for gold drew the people to the tombs of the pharaohs for their gold, willing to disrupt the journey to the afterlife and anger the gods by robbing them. This shows that the people of Egypt, and the priests were willing to throw the afterlife away for gold.
