Back to the Valley of the Kings

There are new ground penetrating radar studies going on in the world famous necropolis Biban el Malouk, Valley of the Kings. The team consists of Egyptians working on behalf of the Ministry of State for Antiquities and the Glen Dash Foundation for Archaeological Research.

This is not the first time that ground penetrating radar has been used in the valley but the technology has now become much better and their hoping for the best preferably to find Kings Thutmosis II and/or Ramses VIII intact! That would be nice, they are also being realistic from experience from last time when digging proved that many of the anomalies from previous radar readings were natural fractures and old lighting equipment.
