I know many people take the News from the Valley of the Kings newsfeed and miss out on the comments, which is a shame as some are brilliant.
So here's a comment from Keith Payne that you shouldn't miss.

Just weighing in with my own suspiscions (I am the guy who did the interview for Heritage Key), I think you are probably right that the announcement to be made in October is with regard to KV64. But there is a part of me that thinks it COULD be Nefertiti.
As Ann mentioned, Dr. ZH is retiring this year, and I really think he wants to make this the year of Nefertiti. I am working on a story over on my own website (just click my name) about the "Year of Nefertiti" but the basic argument follows.

I: He has already said he plans to reveal the location of Nefertiti's tomb this winter.

II: In the next few weeks we are all going to be hearing that he has received peer confirmation of the two DNA tests linking one of the fetuses in Tut's tomb to Tut. That will allow him to genetically identify the mother, Tut's wife, who is Nefertiti's daughter, thus leading to Nefertiti's own mummy

(BTW I blog about the bust of Nefertiti and the missing mummy mutnodjmet at Heritage Key as well!)

So if I were a stockbroker and Nefertiti was stock, I would be saying buy buy BUY! Expect to see many headlines in future months regarding the lovely queen.

So while the smart money says the "October Suprise" will be KV64, part of me thinks that ZH might dragging the same tomb out into two events. Announce the tomb in October and build anticipation, identify it as Nefertiti in the Winter.

But far wiser sages than I have attempted to divine the mind of Dr. Hawass, and failed. Whatever the outcome, its going to be an exciting fall/winter.

Kate,

Thanks!

And thanks again!

I have been a fan of News from the Valley of the Kings for a while now, but only started commenting when I started up my own site and realized how rewarding feedback is.

I really get the feeling this autumn is going to be very important for your website in particular and your mission in general.

Of course, I could be falling for "Zahi Hype," but I don't think he would overplay his hand in his last year. Who would want to be remembered for that?

Very interesting times!

Thanks Keith

In terms of the blog. I prefer to run it as a community affair, sort of a cross between a blog and a forum, so if somebody posts a really interesting comment, I like to move it to it's own article and allow others to comment.

If you ever want to comment, feel free to link your blog. It's on topic so it's not spam - indeed we ought to work out how to bring all our blogs closer together as they are complimentary
