Here is a photo taken in the past couple of days of the Valley of the Kings. For now, until I've taken instruction on the issue, I'll not attribute, but you know who you are and thank you. Let me know later if you wish to be credited. If anybody else has photos, they are always very welcome.

I've quickly scanned the high-res but the eagle-eyed may spot anything I have missed. For me the most noteworthy point is that the pathway to KV8 has not been restored. Presumably the side valley is going to be left as it is showing the managed water course, but that would place KV8 permanently off limits - increasing the pressure on other tombs. Personally I think it a shame that the cave was covered back over - I'd have preferred the valley bottom restored to its level in antiquity.
(I do have a zoomed in view as well but I have chosen not to upload it for now. If anybody spots something on this one, I can check on the other.)
I love Ancient Egypt, enjoy backgammon chouette, photography and travel ... and I'm trying to get my late father's photos online. Please visit my main profile where you will also find links to Facebook and more about my interests.
