Recently announced is a discovery of a womens tomb , Nehmes Bastet, with a intact coffin which is fully painted black and has a nicely preserved mummy inside!

according to the incrisptions in the tomb, the female mummy was a temple singer during Egypt's 22cnd dynasty...

I heard this tomb was actually found aprroximately a year ago, but because of the uprising riots in Egypt! The find was keep quiet until recently!

For more information...
