Royal Burial Found in the Valley of the Kings

     A re-excavation of tomb KV40 in the Valley of the Kings in Egypt has resulted in the revelation of a previously unknown burial chamber that contains the looted remains of perhaps fifty members of families of Tuthmose IV and Amenhotep III.

     A number of children's mummies were found mostly intact, but the adult mummies were torn apart by tomb robbers long ago.
