Tomb of Unknown Queen and Hundreds of Mummies Found Near King Tut’s Tomb

November 2022 is turning out to be a big month for Egypt and Egyptology. The entire world is joining that country in celebrating the 100th anniversary of the discovery and opening of the tomb of King Tutankhamun, the limited opening of the $1 billion Grand Egyptian Museum near the Pyramids of Giza in Cairo which has many of the contents of King Tut’s tomb on display, and the discovery of a tunnel under the temple of Taposiris Magna near the ancient city of Alexandria which many believe leads to the long-lost tomb of Queen Cleopatra. Now comes word from leading Egyptologist and former Minister of Antiquities Zahi Hawass that he and his team have uncovered hundreds of mummies which may members of King Tut’s staff and a pyramid very close to King Tut’s tomb which may be the long-lost burial site of yet another Egyptian queen. With these latest finds, Zahi Hawass is certainly putting the ‘new’ into the New Kingdom.
