No New Tombs in Valley of Kings!

Dr. Hawass once again spouts his usual line about the 70% of Egypt antiquities have yet to be found, I guess he would know but a more interesting tidbit is the cessation of exploration in Upper Egyptian sites to focus on Lower Egypt sites.

I guess that is as close as we are going to get to Dr. Hawass telling us that his announcement that he and his team had located two new tombs in the valley of kings has not come through.

I think this as close as we are going to get - a Dr Hawass Lecture:

I think he may be after ARTP's KV64 as well, - 3 tombs in total.
