New Tomb in Valley of the Kings.

The first tomb discovered in the Valley of the Kings in Egypt for more than 80 years was opened to journalists and researchers as archaeologists cracked the last of seven sarcophagi to reveal embalming materials and jewellery.
“This is better than finding a mummy, it’s a treasure,” Nadia Lokma, the chief curator, said as the sarcophagi — filled with fragile remains that would crumble if touched — were opened. The tomb is thought to be more than 3,000 years old.
