1st intact tomb found in Egypt since 1922

There will be many more posts on this later. Exciting news and fills one -- well, me at least -- with a sense of wonder and awe. MSNBC has a slide show. The Telegraph of London has good details:

More than 80 years after the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun, Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities has stunned the world of Egyptology by revealing that another tomb has been found, just four metres away from Tutankhamun in the Valley of the Kings. For a long time it was thought that the valley, opposite the modern city of Luxor and the source of many of the most famous discoveries, had given up all of its secrets. The discovery was the work of a team of American archaeologists from the University of Memphis led by Otto Schaden. "It's very, very exciting," said Patricia Podvorzski, curator of Egyptian Art at the University of Memphis. "It was completely unexpected, so long after the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb. Many archaeologists said the valley was done 100 years ago."
