@Setanta,
OK, a tad off topic, we have seen Steve Martin in concert 3 times. First time at an auditorium at the University of Maryland, during that performance he spilt some water on the stage, asked for a towel, wiped up the spill and draped it over the edge of the stage. When the spotlight moved to follow him to center stage he directed the light to stay on the towel so it would dry more quickly. The other two times we saw him at larger venues, both times he did the king tut song, once in costume and another in that white suit on roller skates.

Anybody remember his time on SNL where he danced with Gilda Radner...classic!

@glitterbag,
One of my all time favorite scenes is the final scene where he and Lily Tomlin danced to "All of Me.". They looked like they had a really great time dancing together.

I was going to say that it is nice knowing there are still things from early history yet to be discovered, but it sounds as if his tomb was already robbed by tomb raiders long ago.

Here's info on the short lived dynasty he is thought to be a member of

This sort of thing is going to happen more and more as new technology allows prospective archaeologists to view vast areas before deciding where to did. I recently saw a documentary with historian Dan Snow who consulted with "space archaeologist" Sarah Parcak. They found all sorts of stuff.

Quote:
From 2003 to 2004, Parcak used a combination of satellite imaging analysis and surface surveys to detect 132 prospective sites of archaeological interest, some dating back to 3,000 B.C.

In partnership with her husband, Dr. Greg Mumford, she directs Survey and Excavation Projects in the Fayoum, Sinai, and Egypt's East Delta. They have used several types of satellite imagery to look for water sources and possible archaeological sites. According to Parcak this approach reduces the time and cost for determining archaeological sites compared to surface detection

@Setanta,
I also read an article where they sent away photographs of some wall drawings for experts to analyze, and found that it was ancient Egyptian choreography.

Here they have managed to recreate the dance steps.....

@Lordyaswas,
There is such an air of authenticity in that dance! Brilliant!
