I'll post properly (late tonight) - this is an update from my mobile phone. There are two new stories. Dr Hawass has news of a tomb re-opening and Andie Byrne covers the appalling state of Highclere Castle. Links are in the white sidebar below recent comments - I'll circulate something detailed tonight.

There's also a story about an Ebony Shrine found at Deir-el-Bahri which Tim posted on his blog a few days ago When I read it there didn't seem to be an article but it's working now. Again I'll cover tonight.

Andie Byrne reports problems with Google Alerts/Reader reporting some old stories as new. It's happening to me too. On one of my other blogs I bemoan the passing of Newsgator so as a recent forced 'convert' to Google Reader it's really irritated me. Writing the long-promised update to the newsreader for the sidebar has suddenly become more urgent. I thought of a much easier way to do it last week as well re-using most of the code which displays comments. If over the next couple of weeks you see oddities in the sidebar then please forgive - I can only do so much testing elsewhere.

Hi Kate

On Aug 4, 2009 I posted an article called Revisiting an old kingdom tomb with the link clearly dated 07-01 2008. I feel this post may have been misinterpreted and resulted in the post coming across as new news. Part of what I do with my blogs is to remind readers of some terrific and important discoveries from the past.

Thanks for your interest Kate and hopefully the old article was worth seeing again!

Tim,
Thanks for clatifying. I couldn't get the post on the Ebony Shrine to work on your blog last week so I hadn't read it - but the reader today finally delivered text so I'll read it tomorrow.

It wasn't your blog that served up old news, butHawass's - and I don't mean the really late KV57 post. For some reason some of his much earlier posts were in the feed as new.
