Just when it seems little remains to discover of ancient Egypt, an amazing new find has come to light.

Researchers are thrilled to have found a new tomb with the bones of a long lost pharaoh named Woseribre Senebkay still inside.

Tomb robbers may have looted most of the tomb's original contents, but there is still much to be excited about.

The pharaoh's funeral mask has been found.

Also, scientists have pieced the pharaoh's bones back together.

According to Joseph Wagner who works with the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities, this doesn't simply represent the discovery of one ancient ruler. Instead, it reveals "the necropolis of an entire forgotten dynasty."
