The looting of pyramids and mastabas in Egypt was big business especially just after a Pharaoh was entombed with his enormous wealth in treasures. Historians tell us that looting was practiced at all levels of society and was not particularly regarded as a disgraceful occupation.

Mummified Pharaohs bodies were stolen and sold to collectors or desecrated. Nothing was sacred.The Medjay had a job on their hands trying to maintain security and although they were feared by many, it didn’t stop robbers repeating raids on tombs as the rewards of their ill-gotten gains were very high indeed.The penalty for being caught ...
