I mentioned yesterday that photos show new excavations in the Valley of the Kings. We've not managed to pinpoint the location, but this is what Joseph Hill, who took the photo above on 9th April 2009, has to say about the location:

I took the photo between two shots of this site facing the placard that reads "KV 5: Sons of Rameses II" so this must be across from KV5, in the stretch between KV2 and KV7. I'm pretty sure that must be where it was. There were people sorting through pottery shards, gluing together pottery, and I believe excavating in multiple places along the way.

I've linked to the point in the Flickr photostream so you can look at the shots either side that Joseph mentions in case this helps to narrow the location of this new dig. If you back out of that set, Joseph has a lot of good photos of Egypt.

Kate,

There is a new photo on "Flickr", posted, 5/5/2009, be Leah Ibraheem showing additional digging in the valley. It appears to be in the front/left hand side, of the "Rest Building", as you look at it from "KV62". It would appear that Dr. Hawass values the "GPR" work Nicolas Reeves had done years ago. If you go back and look at the anomalies found, this location would fit the findings for "Feature-1". Also, the photos showing the "Re-cover Order" has a corresponding location of the location of the "Feature-2" location. It's interesting, that in the 5/5/2009 photo noted above, it appears that if this is in front of the "Rest Building", that building has been partically demolished. Also, because of the location of this new excavation, would answer the question why there is a steel frame across the "Cave" excavation in front of KV63. This, no doutb, would be support beams for a "Bridge" to "KV16/17/18". That's my thought for now.
