Egypt tomb reveals ancient mummies


It was untouched and sealed for more than two and a half thousand years but now a recently discovered Egyptian tomb containing more than 20 mummies has been re-opened.

The chamber was discovered at the bottom of a deep shaft during excavations near Cairo. The BBC's Christian Fraser went into the tomb.
