      ​Not a huge expert on Egyptian archeology, but the beard on that sarcophagus was reserved for members of the royal family I think.
      ​Turns out the tomb is from the era of Tutankhamun and belonged to a important judge named Userhat.

      In 1740, a Dutch merchant ship called 'De Rooswijk' sank on the notorious Goodwin Sands in Kent, killing all 350 people on board. Now, almost 280 years later, a huge research mission is being launched to salvage the enormous merchant ship.
