Brian Yare has posted his pictures from 14th January of the cliffside excavation by tomb KV8 (Merenptah). There are of the same high quality as his photos of the central excavation. I've not had time to study them yet as I wanted to get link up quickly but they are definitely worth viewing.

Update

I've now had a chance to look through them carefully. The first observation is that they seem intent on removing all the rubble down to bedrock: if there's something there to be found, it should be. Dennis also drew my attention to a strange red box in a couple of the photos. It's sort of like an upside down wheelbarrow with cables attached to it. Does anybody know what it is as I'm stumped? A generator? Or a survey instrument. It's hard to make out, but there may in fact by two linked by cables?
