Tomb may be for princess who sheltered Moses

A British archaeologist has found the tomb of an Egyptian princess believed to be the biblical ''daughter of Pharaoh'' who found the infant Moses floating in an ark of bulrushes. Geoffrey Martin discovered the tomb about 15 miles south of Cairo, according to a report in the newspaper al-Ahram.

In a report by archaeologist Kamal Mallakh, the newspaper said the tomb belonged to Princess Taya, a daughter of Seti I, who reigned from 1312 to 1300 BC.
