    New tomb found in Valley of Kings
    CAIRO -- American archaeologists have uncovered a pharaonic-era tomb in Egypt's Valley of the Kings, the first uncovered there since King Tutankhamen's in 1922, Egypt's antiquities chief announced.
    The 18th Dynasty tomb included five mummies in intact sarcophagi with colored funerary masks and with more than 20 large storage jars, marked with pharaonic seals, said Zahi Hawass, head of the Supreme Council of Antiquities.
    A University of Memphis team of archaeologists led by Otto Schaden found the tomb about 13 feet below the ground, buried under rubble and stones 16 feet away from King Tut's tomb.
