With thanks to Dave Hay, here's another photo looking into the Valley of the Kings a couple of weeks ago. This I think shows all the areas people were interested in from last season so I have uploaded the full-res and artificially sharpened it. Click it to enlarge.

I can't see anything of interest.

Roxanne Wilson, keeper of KV-63's web site, has just posted some comments from Dr Otto Schaden. His plans for the coming January season start are there. With the 'tomb' cleared and last of the jars opened he is now in the study phase. Noteworthy in the section on Carter celebration lectures is the statement: "There were 83 years separating the discoveries of KV-62 and KV-63, but it may not take another fourscore years before KV-64 appears." That obviously means he knows something but can not say. He choice of the term "appears" rather than "discovered" seems to confirm a discovery has been made.

Thanks, I'll take a look at tomorrow - tonight I'm busy on Squidoo tonight updating my material gingerbread houses (seriously, a writer ought to be able to write on many topics and gingerbread houses are very popular just now).

I also agree with you about the use of words, particulary "appears" which contrasts strongly with "discoveries" earlier in the sentence. I'll do a post about Hawass's latest video later/tomorrow but he ends "There are many important tombs that we have not found yet, such as the tombs of Nefertiti and Amenhotep I. Perhaps these also escaped the detection of ancient tomb robbers and we will be able to repeat the success Howard Carter had in finding the tomb of Tutankhamun." I think there is every chance that both of these tombs will "appear" over the next few years.
