The Revd Mason, an elderly English priest on his last trip to Egypt uncovers the tomb of Dalukah, who had been put to death with her lover, Aba-aner, because he was a commoner. Mason brings back the two mummies, but he also brings back the amulet of Set which had been left to imprison them.
He eventually reburies them as the mummies began to decompose in the damp English atmosphere. Years later in the heat of a blistering summer George Brownlow decides to build a shelter. As he digs, he finds Mason’s amulet of Set and it possesses him to follow its purposes. Brownlow’s family soon become slaves to a re-enactment of the saga of Dalukah and Aba-aner.
