The Western Valley of the Kings was what I was dying to see. This is the area oppositive tomb WV23 (Ay) which has been excavated down to bedrock. I've got several of these, all large resolution. I'll check them through over the next couple of days and upload the best bits. For now I've just put a low-res up as there's nothing on this one when blown up but it's a good placing shot.
Having skimmed them, there's no sign that a tomb entrance was located, but it could have been covered back over. My guess is that there was a radar anomoly but it didn't turn out to be anything. Perhaps the most seasoned Valley of the Kings watchers will be most interested in learning the level of the bedrock in the Western Valley.
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.
