Very cool ! I would think that they would share the same tomb. It will be interesting to find out if the story is true or just romantisized as to the cause of death of both Cleo and Mark.

Wow, that would be one of the greatest finds since the discovery of King Tut's tomb if this pans out to be true. Anxious to hear the results in November.

It could always be a stalker's shrine, too. That aside, it would be really neat if this discovery really is the tomb of Cleopatra. I'd love to learn the truths.

The Queen Cleopatra's tomb, is under the water, they need to look there if they want to find it ... but inside i think are allot of traps ... i just think they need to look under the water.

Why would Cleopatra's tomb be under water, Lully2u?

I've seen SO many articles about this and they seem like a colossal hype job. They found a cemetery in the vicinity of a temple that has three burial shafts. It must be Anthony and Cleopatra because there's a bust of Cleopatra there and a mask of a Roman looking guy about Cleopatra's age. And they found a bunch of coins with Cleopatra's head on them.If you looked in my pockets now you'd see a bunch of coins with Abraham Lincoln and George Washington on them. That doesn't mean Washington and Lincoln are buried in my basement. We've got one of those busts of Beethoven... [More]

What everyone is forgetting is that there was more than one Queen Cleopatra, so it could be any one of these ladies they end up finding.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cleopatra
