Italian archaeologists have had an unexpected find while working at the Temple of Amenhotep II.  By the Serapeum they have discovered five tombs from the Third Intermediate Period.  The highlight seems to be the find of canopic jars - picture on Ahram with a few more details.

(Sorry I have been quiet.  As I mentioned before Christmas, Egyptological was targeted by mistake during the tit-for-tat hacks of Egyptian and Israeli government sites.  I took Christmas off then had to completely wipe my laptop to be certain no esoteric malware was lurking unseen by my anti-virus programmes.  My laptop is back in commission now but I still have things to reload.  We are also in the process of restoring Egyptological and security hardening it.  We hadn't expected an Eyptology site to be a political target for hacktivists but the experience has show how easy it is to get caught up in the crossfire.)
