This is hardly new news as Jane Akshar scooped it several weeks ago when she visited the tomb, but Dr Hawass reports that the beautifully decorated tomb of Horemheb has reopened, with the reopening announced by a press release from Minister of Culture, Farouk Hosni.  (Strangely, Dr Hawass spells Horemheb as Haraemhab which is not the usual English rendition of the name.)  The only aspect of the short post that is news is that the tomb is the first to have equipment installed to control humidity.

There is a nice-isg photo with the post - but I prefer Dalbera's photos on Flickr (one shown above and another below).  The photos on Hawass's blog is a poorly shot.
