Dr Hawass has published a photo showing some of the finds from the Tomb of Seti I in the Valley of the Kings, tomb KV17. The size of one of the statues is surprising (even if it doesn't look to be a premier piece). If these articles were carried into the tunnel by water then the force of water must have been considerable, although the tomb doesn't seem to show flood damage consistent with a large torrent of moving water. It does make it seem as though the tunnel had a purpose as Dr Hawass himself has said he believes.
