I got an email asking if it was true and I have just got of the phone to Mansour Boraik head of the SCA in Luxor who says it is.
I tell you I am up the valley tomorrow at 6 as I have never seen this tomb.
Mr Mansour told me they are opening as an experiement and monitoring the levels to see how it goes. When I asked him how long it is going to be open he said it depended on the results.
Here is a link to the Theban Mapping Project http://www.thebanmappingproject.com/sites/browse_tomb_871.html
Mr Mansour also told me that they are going to be starting the final clearance of the Sphinx Avenue so one wonders what that will turn up.
