Archaeologists have discovered an intact, ancient Egyptian tomb in the Valley of the Kings, the first since King Tutankhamun's was found in 1922.

A team led by the University of Memphis found the previously unknown tomb complete with unopened sarcophagi and five undisturbed mummies. The archaeologists have not yet been able to identify them.

It has yet to be determined whether the tomb is a royal tomb or members of the court but it's definitely someone connected to the royal family, according to Zahi Hawass.
