      An ancient, untouched Syrian tomb that wowed the archaeological world
      on its discovery by Johns Hopkins University researchers nearly six
      years ago has revealed another secret: It is not alone.

      The tomb, which was filled with human and animal remains, gold and
      silver treasures and unbroken artifacts dating back to the third
      millennium B.C., is actually one of at least eight located near each
      other in Umm el-Marra, archaeologist Glenn Schwartz said. That northern
      Syrian city is believed to be the site of ancient Tuba, one of Syria's
      first cities and the capital of a small kingdom, said Schwartz, Whiting
      Professor of Archaeology in the Department of Near Eastern Studies at
      Johns Hopkins.
