Peru: Archaeologist Giersz shows his hand- 3 Queens, Gold found in Royal Tomb

As a poker hand, 3 queens is nothing to sneeze at.  If you are an archaeologist in the 21st century, happening upon an undisturbed tomb that contains 3 queens and all of the possessions traditionally buried with royalty after their death can be priceless.

So when Milosz Giersz, the head of a University of Warsaw research team reported his findings to National Geographic , stating that “We are talking about the first, unearthed royal imperial tomb.”,  there was a lot of excitement in the region.
