In Egypt's Valley of the Kings , a tomb was created...3,000 years ago

A look at one of the sarcophagi dating from the 18th dynasty in a newly found tomb containing five mummies was officially opened in the Valley of the Kings on Friday, the first such discovery since the grave of Pharaoh Tutankhamun was uncovered in 1922.

The tomb was found by a U.S. team from the University of Memphis.

Simply amazing.

Sorry to get political here but I am sure the Egyptian MInistry of Culture is trying to nail this discovery to the origins of Arabic population in Egypt.

ummm, I don't know about that.

The origins of the ancient Egyptians as opposed to their modern counterparts is pretty well a scientific given.

Still, you might be right.they might just try to link the two.
