More tombs likely found in Egypt's Valley of the Kings

Egyptblog Underground radar searches point to eight undiscovered tombs still hidden in Egypt's storied Valley of the Kings.
The Amarna Royal Tombs Project reports two radar searches undertaken in 2000 suggests that hollow spaces underlie two regions of the Valley near King Tut's tomb and a recently-uncovered tomb near King Amenmesse's resting place.
Following a re-analysis of radar data by team member Hirokatsu Watanabe, likely "some or all of the eight remaining anomalies also represent undiscovered burials," reports project archaeologist Nicholas Reeves.
The radar data pointed to KV-63, a single-chambered tomb shaft uncovered under an ancient worker's hut in 2006.
