When I first posted my previous post, I had a photo of the wrong boulder. Many thanks to Kamil for correcting me and supplying the right photos. (I have changed the photo in the first post, but just to be certain I have repeated the correct photo in this post as well.)
The boulder is much bigger than I thought - in the lowest photo above it is the boulder on which the guy with the blank shirt is standing. I now also better understand the difficult it posts. It isn't just the boulder itself, it would also mean clearing all the other rocks from around it and of which may fall - and moving them could dislodge the big boulder, and as the middle photo shows, they are working right above the Deir el-Bahri temples.
While there may be something beneath the boulder all is not lost as one other location is suspected of harbouring the entrance to a tomb.
I love Ancient Egypt, enjoy backgammon chouette, photography and travel ... and I'm trying to get my late father's photos online. Please visit my main profile where you will also find links to Facebook and more about my interests.
