KV62 decorationDr Hawass and the SCA have announced a project to conserve KV62, the Valley of the Kings tomb of Tutankhamun. The article doesn't explictly state that the tomb will close during the 6 year project, but it seems likely. As a replica tomb is being constructed,if Tutankhamun's tomb closes, it seems unlikely that it will ever re-open again to the general public.

There is a second article about the Valley of the Kings since the discovery of KV62 in November 1922.

(Photo is one of those I feature of my static page about KV62 on Squidoo. I'll add something there about the conservation project over the weekend.)

As much as the idea of Tutankhamuns tomb being recreated is a great idea for the future of the paintings, etc- i still feel that you cannot get the same feel as you would being in the original.

I wonder if the mysterious brown marks on the wall of KV63 will be reversed once scientists work out what they are...
