I swear I looked a month ago and didn't spot anything new, so I am grateful to David Krueger for spotting that Dr Otto Schaden has posted the start of a 2011 "dig" diary, dated 22 January, and which I had missed.  Of course there is no digging now: the emphasis is now on recording and conservation.  Perhaps the most interesting part is that some items have been transferred to museums for public display:

Coffins E and G are in Minya, slated for the new Aton/Akhenaten museum there, and they are accompanied by 21 of the large storage jars from the chamber of KV-63.  The small gilt coffin (object G.6) had been sent to the museum at Sharm el Sheikh
