The ruins of the Taposiris Magna temple in what is now Abusir, Egypt, tower over an SUV convoy on April 19, 2009.

The site may be home to the tomb of doomed lovers Antony and Cleopatra, archaeologists announced the same day.

"This could be an important discovery," Egyptian archaeology official Zahi Hawass told National Geographic News in 2008, when some of the first evidence was uncovered, "bigger than that of King Tutankhamun's tomb."
