This is a massive new discovery and for right now we can not accurately define and describe what this means for the historic record.   This find challenges what we understood and knew but the find is so new that there is lots of guessing going on around it.

Coins and other historic artifacts are frequently found throughout the world.  This particular find wasn't part of a scientific or historic research project but rather something that was found by happenstance, observant people happened to be in the right location to find it.

Joy Kinley's curator insight, November 30, 2015 2:00 PM

An accident lead to a major find - what we know to be true about history is frequently only part of the picture.  During the restoration of the funeral mask anomalies were uncovered.  Now in order to understand these anomalies further research is being done in King Tut's tomb.  

 

We originally thought that all of the things in the tomb belonged to a young pharaoh who ruled Egypt after a chaotic period in history. What we are seeing though is that several of the grave goods were possibly created for his step-mother.

The number of items of clothing and shoes that scholars are finding leads to the belief that there were numerous women and children around Roman forts.  Does this mean that all soldiers had families or the ones that were further away from Rome did?

Archaeologists Unearth Ancient Tomb of Chinese Emperor and 7 Nobles Full of Riches - Ancient Origins

Archaeologists Unearth Ancient Tomb of Chinese Emperor and 7 Nobles Full of Riches - Ancient Origins | Ruek's World History Scoops | Scoop.it
In 74 BC the royal Han Dynasty clan of ancient China dethroned the emperor after just 27 days because of his lack of talent and for intolerably indulging in pleasures.

Joy Kinley's curator insight, November 12, 2015 1:16 PM

Whenever large burials are found we can learn a lot about the culture by the grave goods that are left behind.  This will be an interesting grave as this emperor only ruled a few days before he was removed from power because of not just his lack of ability (which could have been mitigated by good advisers) but also because he flaunted morality.
