I'd missed this.  Andrew Collins reported on illegal finds at Nazlet el-Samman near the Giza pyramids.  I'm not sure what period they relate to - I'm guessing New Kingdom (which is why I am reporting here) but only on the basis of what Andrew says, and he himself is relying on second hand information.

I've been unable to find any official confirmation of this story.

(Supplemental.  It looks as though the objects may be old Kingdom so I should have put it on the other blog.  There's an earlier article on Andrew's site where he says there are rumours that the finds relate to Khufu's Valley Temple.)
