PetamenophisThis video isn't really new - probably about 3 years old - but I have never seen it and it has only recently been posted on YouTube.  Indeed, I hadn't really heard about this tomb, but with The Lost Tombs of Thebes in bookshops, perhaps it's a good time to air this video about the lagest non-royal tomb in the Theban Hills near the Valley of the Kings.  I can't embed so you will need to watch the video over at YouTube but I really recommend this documentary.  (Warning - it's nearly an hour long, so treat youself to a glass of wine!)

If you want a quick into then this article, with a photo a Jane Akshar, dates to the re-opening of the tomb in 2005.

PS If you prefer to buy a DVD, the site of the production company offers one for a rather large €62. There is a free transcript though.

Would love to watch it, but:

"This video contains content from Journeyman Pictures, who has decided to block it in your country."

Thrilling. If anyone has a mirror that works in the US, please let us know.
