KV57

Tomb KV57 is an ancient Egyptian tomb. Located in the Valley of the Kings in Egypt, it was used for the burial of Horemheb, the last Pharaoh of the Eighteenth dynasty; the tomb was located by Edward Ayrton in February 1908, working for Theodore Davis. Due to its location in the valley floor, the tomb was filled with debris, washed down in the occasional flash-flooding; the tomb is markedly different from the other major Eighteenth dynasty royal tombs. It does away with the dog-legged construction, has painted bas-reliefs, rather than simple painted walls. Passages from the Book of Gates appear for the first time; the decoration was not completed through this king's fourteen years rule. The sarcophagus of the king was constructed from carved, red quartzite, was found with its lid broken. In it were contained bones and remains from several burials, none of them conclusively from Horemheb. Davis, Theodore M; the Tombs of Harmhabi and Touatânkhamanou. London: Duckworth Publishing, 2001.

1951 NBA draft

The 1951 NBA draft was the fifth annual draft of the National Basketball Association. The draft was held on April 1951, before the 1951 -- 52 season. In this draft, ten remaining NBA teams took turns selecting amateur U. S. college basketball players. In each round, the teams select in reverse order of their win–loss record in the previous season; the Tri-Cities Blackhawks participated in the draft, but relocated to Milwaukee and became the Milwaukee Hawks prior to the start of the season. The draft consisted of 12 rounds comprising 87 players selected. Gene Melchiorre from Bradley University was selected first overall by the Baltimore Bullets. However, he never played in the NBA due to his involvement in a point shaving scandal while playing college basketball. Myer Skoog from University of Minnesota was selected before the draft as Minneapolis Lakers' territorial pick; the following list includes other draft picks.
