I've just read the Heritage Key article on Zahi's lecture in Indianapolis on 7th August. I wish I had read this sooner.
Dr. Hawass also spoke extensively on the exciting work taking place in the Valley of the Kings. For centuries, archaeology has been the province of nearly every nation except Egypt. In 2007, Zahi Hawass set out to change this with the first all-Egyptian team to work the Valley of the Kings. It seems that he is prepared to make history yet again, as his team hopes to reveal a new tomb in October of 2009. He did not give details, but provided plenty of fuel for speculation. Three notable women come to the forefront.
Refer to the article for speculation about who was buied in tomb KV64. This seems to be a very substantial indication that a tomb has been found. (Personally my betting is still on 3 or more tombs but we may have to wait a few years to find out.). There is also mention that he hopes to "reveal the tomb of Nefertiti during winter 2009/2010". It's ambiguous whether this is a separate tomb or a suggestion that the October announement will be of Nefertiti's tomb. My guess is that KV64 won't be Nefertiti but will be some other royal woman. If Nefertiti's tomb is found, it's probably beneath the rest house. (For the record I'm also predicting at least one pharaoh's tomb as well over the next couple of years.) I don't believe a tomb would be announced until it had been thoroughly searched so I don't believe the timeline works for Nefertiti to be announced in October - if her tomb has been found.
