Intact 2,000-year old Etruscan tomb discovered

ROME (Reuters) - Archaelogists have discovered a more than 2,000-year-old Etruscan tomb perfectly preserved in the hills of Tuscany with a treasure trove of artifacts inside, including urns that hold the remains of about 30 people.

Inside the tomb, a narrow corridor led to a small burial chamber, about 2 meters long and 1.79 meters wide, he said. It housed about 80 objects including vases and mirrors in bronze and ceramic. Urns holding human remains were also found.

How great is it when they find a tomb untouched. Guess the Romans missed this one.

Can you imagine being the first person to peer inside, kinda like Indiana Jones.

30 people, could be a family tomb do you think?

I feel an interesting story coming on with that one.
