An amazing find.

Here's a related story from the same team at Tel Megiddo: Israeli archaeologists deduce (from the Megiddo dig as well as one at the Sea of Galilee) that Ancient Egypt took measures to affirmatively manage the effects of spreading drought in parts of their Empire during the late bronze age:

Now this is my kind of thing. Very interesting article, Still Waters. Thanks for posting it. It's interesting that the tomb was used at least twice, and perhaps for people from the same family line.

But not unprecedented... at least in Egypt.

Apparently not unprecedented in Canaan according to the bible mentioning family tombs with time separated internment. Well that and evidence like this find.:P

But a royal tomb n Canaan, packed with all sorts of golden goodies, is quite rare.

I was only referring to the familial aspect. It is a fascinating find.
