Just saw this story on the BBC website: a new, previously untouched tomb has been found, entirely by accident, in the Valley of the Kings. It is believed to date back to the 18th dynasty, which ruled between 1539 and 1292 B.C. Extraordinary.

BBC news: Pharaonic tomb find stuns Egypt.

Update: and another, this time in Greece.
