Discovery Channel specials (
"Discovery Channel has back-to-back specials that go inside a burial chamber discovered in February just 14 and a half metres from the entrance to the tomb of King Tutankhamen. The latest tomb included five mummies in intact sarcophagi with painted funeral masks according to Zahi Hawass, head of Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities.
From the description in the publicity material, we'll have to suffer through the usual 'who lies in this mystery tomb?' voiceovers torquing the bejesus out of the revelation to come, but the Discovery Quest team of scientists usually produce the real deal in the end."

5 mummies? Last February? I only heard of KV63. It has no mummies. Where is this other one with mummies? Looks like the site mentioned really goofed. Or I've been off the planet for a while.
