The third consecutive season of archaeological investigations at the funerary temple of Thutmosis III , on the west bank at Luxor, started on October 2nd, until December 17th.
One of the most interesting discoveries this season was a tomb with a corridor, shaft, and a sealed funerary chamber. Several burial jars and plates were found inside the chamber in a good state of preservation, allowing the tomb to be dated to the Second Intermediate Period.
More about the Third Archaeological Campaign (2010) is on the project's web site, including a set of very good pictures. Thanks to Jane Akshar for spotting the update.

This is obviously the good newa season (WHY?). More discoveries at Kom-el-Hettan, reported at:

There are other reports in circulation, but this seems to be the most serious one.
