Dr Kent Weeks has published one of his eagerly awaited - but utterly unpredictable in terms of timing - updates on the clearing of tomb KV5. It doesn't report much: work over the past two seasons has mostly been consolidation of the precarious ceilings. It does promise much for the 2009/10 season though, and hopefully they may discover remains of a burial in Chamber 5.

Dr Weeks has also attached a TMP report on Site Management for the Valley of the Kings.

(My thanks for Len Solt for spotting the update.)

Hi Kate
Luxor Jane has posted a bit on the use of laser scanning for generating 3D images of monuments. She was wondering why it was not used for other works. Back in '05 I talked to one of the 'big players' after he had shown its use on his project. Shortly after that I did ask Ray J. why he is not using this technique. His opinion seemed to be that he believes his old very slow process superior even though the monuments will shed all detail prior to being documented. Seems like a second documenting group should be funded.

Thanks for that comment. I thought it deserved to be a post all of it's own so that it goes out to all those subscribed to the blog.
