Pharaonic tomb find stuns Egypt

Archaeologists have discovered an intact, ancient Egyptian tomb in the Valley of the Kings, the first since King Tutankhamun's was found in 1922.

A team led by the University of Memphis found the previously unknown tomb complete with unopened sarcophagi and five undisturbed mummies.

The archaeologists have not yet been able to identify them....

'Still wrong'

The discovery has come as a surprise to many, Ms Podzorski said.

"People have been saying the valley was done for 100 years," she said.

"They said it before Howard Carter found King Tutankhamun's tomb and they said it after. But, obviously, they are still wrong."

What cool news!

I was actually at the valley of the kings on holiday a few weeks ago, and I managed to watch them digging for this tomb for a little while! I doubt it will be the last!

Great find, can't wait to hear more on the story

A really interesting find and such a pleasant surprise to read about this in our Newspapers instead of all the usual bad news!.

I have never been to Egypt but the whole concept of the Ancient Egyptians has always interested me intently.

I was lucky enough to see the Ramases Exibition in Dallas some years ago, that was some exibition.
