The mummy of a priest and the skeleton of a grave robber were the chief findings in the televised opening of two Egyptian tombs Tuesday evening. The skeleton was found inside the pyramid of Queen Khamerernebty II but was clearly not the queen's, said archeologist Zahi Hawass. "The entrance and the chambers were unfinished and the queen was never buried here," he said after the show. The mummy was found in the Tomb of the Unknown, recently unearthed by Hawass.

Princess Fawzia, 92, a member of Egypt's last royal family and the first wife of Iran's later-deposed monarch, died Tuesday in Egypt's Mediterranean port city of Alexandria, according to Paris-based Iranian opposition groups. The cause was not immediately known. Fawzia was the daughter of Egyptian King Fuad I, who ruled until 1936. Her brother and nephew later rose to the throne before the monarchy was toppled in 1952. In 1939, the 17-year-old Fawzia married Iran's then-crown prince, 19-year-old Mohammad Reza Pahlavi.

A documentary directed by Michal Goldman that plays through Thursday at the Grand Theater, this film will remind you of how very big and mysterious the world remains.

They almost seem to cringe against the dirt-smudged walls, their dust-shrouded shapes and dark, melancholy eyes peering from chipped and crooked frames into the gloom of the great room beyond.
