There's a photo on Flickr which has piqued my interest.  It's labelled "Valley of the Kings" but I'm not sure quite where it was taken.  One set of cliffs looks much like another - although it's either well up the Valley of the Kings, the Western Valley or Deir el-Bahri from the look of the cliffs. I've written to ask of course.

It definitely seems to show the wearing of a new path to an opening in the cliffs with lots of workers.  Intruiging.


Aaron Miller who took the photo confirms it was taken at Deir-el-Bahri and has expanded the description on Flickr.

It is the Western Valley and it is guarded with armed guards and no one is allowed near it. You can visit Ay's tomb but go no further. There is a 5+ meter wall of spoil blocking access to the left hand side wadi which has been built up over the last 6 months. You can get around to the wadi after a long walk to come in the back but you are pounced on immediately and escorted away, if you have a camera and they see it they take your film or memory card. No one is saying what they are looking for.

Thanks Kev, that makes it sound as though more now has been found that the foundation deposits which were reported a few weeks ago.

Your linked photo now says: "This picture was taken at Hatshepsut's temple; on the way up they showed us where they've apparently just made yet another discovery (not sure of what?) but these guys were in this "cave" (not sure if it's a tomb?) taking things out and doing general excavations."
