"This is an awesome discovery, Bianca, and great job presenting it! I am betting that there are a lot more undiscovered structures close to the Nile, buried under an alluvial layer. I'm not certain how they arrived at the date for this one, or why they kept it secret for two years, I think that a lot of Egyptologists are more conscious about not having the answers to something as opposed to having the right answers."



Thank you, Josie.

I agree, it is an awesome discovery.  A lot has been discovered at Saqqara in the last few years.

It seems to me that, after the full discovery of KV5 in the Valley of the Kings (Ramses II's immense
tomb for his numerous sons), the focus has definitely shifted to Saqqara.  And, you're right, I also
believe they have only begun to 'scratch the surface' and way more will come to light as time goes
by. 



For all his faults, Zahi Hawass is a 'mover and a shaker'.....

He seems to have completely cut loose from the Egyptian Government and seems to operate very
independently from it (who can blame him, if he can get away with it!) even to the point of generating
a source of income - Tut's exhibits, at home and abroad - so that a NEW, more adequate museum is
being built.  Not to mention his success in obtaining archaeological 'expeditions' ($$$) which mostly
benefit Egypt.

He can get on our nerves for many reasons, but his management of his country's archeological interests
has been superb and has gotten results.  The man is totally obsessed by his profession, and he does
do it well.

No mean feat in the kind of country that Egypt is, politically, and the rest of the world that, in the
past, has robbed its people blind of their own heritage.....

I have been meaning to do an in-depth thread on Saqqara, but it is going to be a monumental job,
if it is to be done properly.

I am going to have to work up a little more enthusiasm for it, LOL, LOL, LOL.......

In the meantime, there's a little bit in the following posts.

Thank you for YOUR own input, I always appreciate it!


Hugs,
