Vocabulary for Reading Comprehension

>{color:purple}Tomb raiding, the act of disinterring a corpse or opening a tomb in order to retrieve the precious artifacts which may have been buried within, has long been the dread of historians and archaeologists in Egypt. Often in the process of removing such antiquities, the conditions vital to the preservation of some types of archaeological evidence, such as mummies, are not fulfilled. For instance, once a grave is opened, humidity may permeate and accelerate the decomposition of artifacts which had been preserved for centuries in relative dryness.{/color} >{color:purple}One known case of tomb raiders who damaged archaeological evidence in Egypt was recorded in 1881, when the mummy of Thutmose III was rediscovered in the Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut. Although it was first unwrapped by Egyptologist Émile Brugsch, the mummy had already suffered extensive damage in the form of cuts and tears in its burial shrouds. One of the archaeologists who rediscovered the mummy, Gaston Maspero, recalled that the body of the mummified king was found outside of his grave as it was ripped out of it by tomb raiders, who mutilated it in their hurry to collect the artifacts and leave. After the robbing of the tomb, the mummy was found and re-interred by locals, who, in their lack of experience in handling mummies, caused additional damage.{/color} >{color:purple}However, data about the time of the robbing may lead to a different perspective on the phenomenon. In the case above, the robbing was eventually dated to the time of the 20th dynasty, i.e., roughly the 11th century BC. This implies that tomb robbing was a trend which began already during times of antiquity and may in itself be a subject of archaeological and historical study. Other archaeological evidence from the period of the 20th dynasty support this approach, including records of investigation and punishment of such ancient grave robbing.{/color} How many **paragraphs** are there in the given text?
