First Tomb Found in the Valley of the Kings in 84 Years

As well as being partially an embalmer's cache (which is exactly what it sounds like), there are two sealed coffins in this tomb that are thought to be related with Tut's family - one possibly containing his widow. They won't be able to tell until later this summer, because the two coffins are in a corner behind a bunch of other stuff that must be cataloged & preserved before moving -a very slow process.

If you have a chance to catch the show on Discovery, it's interesting.
