>A new tomb discovered in Egypt recently is causing archaeologists to ponder its significance. Is this new tomb a royal Egyptian tomb, a supply room used by ancient embalmers, or something else?
The new tomb was hidden in the Valley of the Kings for thousands of years. Today, some archaeologists believe that the finding may be the first tomb to be uncovered in the pharaonic city of the dead since the discovery of King Tutankhamun’s treasures in 1922.
The findings in the tomb include jars of mummification materials and coffins labeled A through G. The discovery of this new tomb will be described in a TV show that will chronicle how the tomb was found. The program, “Egypt’s New Tomb Revealed,” will premiere on June 4, 2006 on the Discovery Channel.
