Nothing New Under the Egyptian Sun?

According to the AP, archeologists today unveiled the first tomb discovered in Egypt's Valley of the Kings in over 80 years, and cracked open the last of seven sarcophagi inside to reveal embalming materials and jewelry.
 
Known by the acronym KV63 — the 63rd tomb found in the Valley — it was discovered accidentally last year by U.S. archaeologists working on the neighboring tomb of Amenmeses, a late 19th Dynasty pharaoh.
 
The tomb is believed to be more than 3,000 years old.
 
Aside from the fact that I think the word sarcophagi is “really cool,”  I find this discovery fascinating. It’s remarkable how much of the past world is still out there waiting to be discovered. And perhaps it’s a shame that so much will likely never be found.
 
The last tomb discovered in Luxor’s Valley of the Kings was that of King Tut, in 1922.
