Has Cleopatra's tomb been found?

An archeologist who has been hunting for the tomb of Cleopatra and Mark Antony uncovered a new "geometric miracle" tunnel under the Taposiris Magna Temple (below), near Alexandria. According to many archeologist, finding the resting place of Cleopatra or the legendary couple would be the greatest discovery of the 21st century. It's too early to tell if the tunnels lead to any tombs.

"Whether or not the tombs are found, a thorough excavation of these ruins could tell us more about the mysterious ancient city. The tunnel has already yielded some treasures: pieces of pottery, and a rectangular block of limestone."




Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor played Mark Antony and Cleopatra in the 1963 movie.
