Egyptologist

Physical Danger

If you're an academic Egyptologist, relax. Nobody ever died from paper cuts. Museum Egyptologists happily report that no mummies have come to life in the lab and strangled them (yet). Egyptian archaeologists potentially have more health risks, from heatstroke to injury on the job, though, thankfully, there aren't too many giant boulder traps left in the Valley of the Kings.
