At Tomb, Pillows but No Mummies So Far – New York Times


NYTimes has a story with lots of pictures on the new “tomb.”

VALLEY OF THE KINGS, Egypt ā€” It had been 84 years since a tomb was unearthed here in the scorching desert burial ground for pharaohs, and the hope, of course, was for mummies. What else could be inside the seven coffins, at the bottom of a shaft that until February had been sealed off from all but termites for over three millenniums?

Very nice pillows, for starters.
