In the Hawass lecture to the gathering in Monterey that I posted about a couple of weeks ago, Dr Hawass mentioned two cliffeside tombs. Geoff Carter has kindly done screen captures of all of Hawass's slides. The quality is still poor - nothing much can be done about that unless anybody has access to a better source for the slides - but still very interesting. I'll spend some time with them over the next few days. I'm hoping the inscriptions can be sharpened up in Photoshop - I'll post what I manage.

In the meantime, there's one I missed. Watching the video back, it was only on screen for a few seconds so others may have missed it as well. It shows the locations of two cuts - remember this is a slide from Dr Hawass so that's pretty much confirmation of probable tomb locations. I'll also try to find a recent photo of the same view so that the areas concerned can be magnified a bit.
