Head of Ramses II

Exciting news for the history buffs.

The head of a statue depicting Ramses II has been found in Nile Delta, Egypt.
"The discovery is important because it may indicate that the excavators are close to the ruins of a major temple of Ramses II in the area," Hawass said [antiquities supremo].

Ramses II was pharaoh of Egypt from 1304 to 1237 BC.
