The Relic of Bir Hooker: How It All Started

In 1988, disco host Gregor Spörri travelled to Egypt to collect ideas for an ancient Egyptian-style club.

How did the Swiss come up with this crazy idea in the first place? The trigger was two mysterious events. One is about Napoleon Bonaparte. After winning the Battle of the Pyramids in 1798, the French general single-handedly explored the Great Pyramid. When he left the building hours later, he seemed to have been quite distraught.

The English journalist spent a whole night alone in the Great Pyramid in the 1930s. In his book ‘Secret Egypt’, Brunton recounts eerie experiences, as well as how, after he had settled into the sarcophagus in the royal chamber, he had experienced an overwhelming initiation into the immortality of his soul. Are there any unknown forces at work in the Great Pyramid? The reports of the two men challenged Spörri to get to the bottom of the matter on the ground.

Spunrri’s project did not go unnoticed and brought him together with a grave robber from Bir Hooker, who seemed to know more about the pyramid than most Egyptologists. At the end of the meeting, the old Arab allowed the Swiss to take a look at the family treasure, which included a grisly relic …
