  • (Adam) In 1798, after Napoleon invaded Egypt,

  • he went totally gaga for the ancient kingdoms.

  • He brought in scholars to document their findings

  • and they helped themselves to whatever they wanted,

  • even returning to France with a severed mummy head

  • for Napoleon's wife.

  • (Napoleon) Oh, Josephine will love this.

  • When images of the findings reached Europe,

  • scholars went cuckoo for these corpses.

  • And over the next century, hundreds of rich Europeans

  • started excavating Egyptian cultural sites like crazy,

  • pilfering thousands of priceless treasures.

  • Check out this sexy-ass statue.

  • I'm gonna put it next to my toilet.

  • That's why, when Howard Carter uncovered it in 1922,

  • it was so well-preserved,

  • that over 5,000 separate items were found inside.

  • (panting)

  • I was in there for thousands of years.

  • Why did no one come back for me?

  • Why didn't I die?

  • The discovery of the tomb made international headlines.

  • It was because of that ancient Egyptian bling.
