Haunted History: Knight Returns Cursed Bones to Egypt
In March of 1937, Sir Alexander Seton, of Edinburgh, Scotland, acquired a few bits of bones from Egypt. Supposedly, the bones were from the body of a Pharaoh.
Almost immediately, strange events began to occur at his home. Maids began to see strange figures wandering the corridors and hallways, several refused to remain in the home. Glassware was broken in the kitchen. Two fires began within the home. The family experienced numerous illnesses. He lent a physician friend the bone, as it was set within a display case of glass, but the physician’s maid broke her leg while trying to escape a phantom that appeared in the home.
Neighbors offered to purchase the bone from him, but he refused, and emphasized it must be returned to Egypt, to the tomb from which it came.
