To stick with this weeks apparent theme of digging things up, I found a great blog post on a great Discovery News blog: Archaeorama. In this post predictions are made for 2009 using some pretty conclusive evidence as to why these are possible discoveries. In one for finding Cleopatra's Tomb, for example, Archaeorama writes:
"2009 might also be the year of the discovery of Cleopatra's tomb.
A team of 12 archeologists and 70 excavators is working at the site of a temple, the Taposiris Magna, 28 miles west of Alexandria. So far, they have found a 400ft tunnel beneath the temple containing clues that the queen and her lover, the Roman general Mark Antony, may lie beneath.
If Hawass is right, this could be the greatest archeological discovery in Egypt since Tutankhamun’s tomb was uncovered by Howard Carter in 1922."
There are also predictions on who the people discovering these amazing things will be. It is an interesting little post, so go read it!
