... the headline is about the sum total of the news.  There are no details and no confirmation - I've tried searching the German news feeds on Google.  It's the Internet rumour mill at it's worst - but equally it could be true of course.

Absolutely no information – but an intriguing statement . . .

I hope it's true. I'm waiting for the next discoveries as I wait for the next episode of a tv show!

Could the use of the word graves rather than tombs be significant?

The word "graves" may be specific - but my guess is it's just how the German has been translated. (Which is why I tried to find the orginal quote in German myself.)

I think the comment about the roots of modern problems being found in ancient causes is an excellent point. One of the many reasons why an enlightened society would fund historical and archaeological research.

Now if someone will just invent an enlightened society!!

Hi Kate

To my knowledge excavating projects are mostly being done by Dr. Zahi Hawass Egyptian expedition particularly in the tunnel of the tomb of Seti I Of course Dr. Otto Schedan's team has limited excavating rights.Its summer and too hot!

I suspect the story has no validity other wise the concerned archaeologist would have used his own website to make the announcment!

He is probably still quoting Hawass who announced the discovery of at least 2 tombs or rather possible entrances to those. I have not heard Hawass retract that statement. I think Hawass got a bit too excited about the digs.
