Jane Akshar reported a few days ago that there are have been substantial finds including papyrus in Dra' Abu El-Naga on the West Bank near the Valley of the Kings.  Zahi Hawass was expected in Luxor yesterday to make an announcement, but so far I have found nothing.  However, a comment on Jane's post is even more interesting:

We were hiking near the Tombs of the Nobles yesterday and saw about 2 dozen workers removing sand and walked up the hill to near Sennefer's tomb and saw that, yes, it was an excavation. We saw pot sherds on the ground and a big yellow tape announcing that it was an archaeological excavation, please keep out. Interesting!
