Not long before we left Egypt we had a second lecture with Zahi Hawass of the Supreme Council of Antiquities. He told us that he had just come from the Valley of the Kings and had some news, it appeared that a new tomb had just been discovered, possibly intact.
I didn't post this info since the SCA is VERY touchy about releasing information about discoveries before they have been inspected and confirmed. Now I can. Here is the story:
It doesn't look like the tomb is royal, but it may be undisturbed. It would be the first newly discovered tomb in the valley since Tutankhamun in 1922. We were in the Valley while they were digging but couldn't get too close. Very cool news indeed.
