Top 10 Archaeological Discoveries of 2006

I hope I’m not ruining it if I give you numbers 1 and 2:

1. Valley of the Kings Tomb
KV63 was the first tomb to be excavated in the Valley of the Kings since Tutankhamun’s in 1922. The chamber held seven 18th Dynasty coffins.

2. 3-Million-Year-Old Child
After years of chiseling tiny bones out of sandstone blocks from Ethiopia’s Rift Valley, paleontologists announced the discovery of a nearly complete Australopithecus afarensis child (see “The New Face of Evolution”).
