This is the second (of two) Heritage Key Valley of the Kings video courtesy of YouTube. The editing at the end is a bit off, but it's much more interesting than the first. It says nothing about KV64 but Dr Hawass concentrates on some of the inscriptions found. Some we've seen before on this blog, but the sketch map of a tomb is new. There is also a really clear shot and explanation of the famous new queen inscription, called Queen Tiy and identified as the Great God's Wife. There's an interesting accompanying article on Dr Hawass's site, in which he says of Queen Tiy, "We hope to find more evidence of this queen through our work here." I know there has been some speculation that KV64 is her tomb, but I think this video just about discounts that possibility.
