The New Tomb: Discovery of KV64 Quite Official Now

In case you haven’t heard, there is a new addition to the list of tombs in the Valley of the Kings!  As I am currently focused on the next pyramid shaft article, and my multi-tasking cache already runneth over, I am pointing you to the sources I go to for information about such things—my brother and sister bloggers.

As always, these are not typical bloggers (have I mentioned how much I dislike that marginalizing term, blogger?), these are folks who are thoughtful, critical, analytical, and who often have direct channels to the primary sources.  Don’t forget to check out the comments sections, as this is where the story tends to develop.  And you have my word that these kind people will welcome your comments and questions as well.

Hi Keith

Very exciting news of this find though I would have preferred the original New kingdom owner. Thanks for the link and all the best to you and your family in the New year.

Hi Tim,

Its always a pleasure, and you are very welcome. I agree, the original occupant would have been a more interesting find, but I am always pleased to meet a Chantress of Amun as well! A God’s Wife would have been even nicer…

Happy New Year to you and yours as well. I hope we all have a little less turmoil in 2012!
