Very, Very Interesting!!! And Then Some

Archaeologists unearth new tombs in Egypt, identifying unknown queen

Queen Khentakawess III's tomb found in Egypt

I wonder what the phrase "identifying unknown queen" means in the PBS report? Obviously, the BBC knew her name. Perhaps it means this was a queen who was previously unknown, but then again, how did BBC manage to name her? I any case, having been to Egypt many years ago, I have been interested in these ancient tombs and the treasures they contain. I find it more than interesting to compare the status of women in modern Islamic Egypt compared to ancient Egypt. I wonder if al-Sisi knew about this find before he spoke yesterday?
