Robert Pick took this photo on 19th January, 2010 while walking in the Theban Hills near the Valley of the Kings. It clearly shows an excvation underway. I'm not certain where exactly it was taken. Robert's full set of photos is here. If somebody thinks they can piece together where the excavations are based on the photo and the ones taken before and afterwards, then I'm sure that would interest readers. Since cameras aren't allowed in the Valley of the Kings and guards are stopping people from taking photos, I am assuming this wasn't taken from withinthe Valley, although it could be a view looking back into the Valley of the Kings from the Theban Hills which I understand is still allowed.
I have emailed Robert as well to ask but leaving him comments on the photo in Flickr might encourage him as well, please! There is a photo taken in the hills which is definitely looking down into the Valley of the Kings and I can't spot anything on that and there has been no other report or photo of excavations in the Valley of the Kings this year - although we all expected them. I have just trogged through a Google search and nobody has mentioned anything so far as I can tell.
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.
