With a massive thank you to the reader who sent me these photos, here are a couple of photos from 8th February showing that the central excavation has been extended further south as a mentioned in an earlier post. This takes the excavation towards one of the sonar anomalies the Stanford Research Institute team detected in 1976.
Can I suggest that you click on the first of these photos to load the higher resolution copy in your browser. Take a look in the near foreground on the shoulder of the watercourse past KV8. Just in front of the seated workers there seems to be an elaborate metallic cover. This is in one of the sites which always seems to be busy in photos.
