What a find! I wonder whether they will find out who is entombed there. Fascinating.

Closeup pics of mural fragments were wonderful. Hope the tomb won't be robbed by locals trying to make a quick buck.

Amazing pictures of this site fill one with wonder about the activities that went on here. Hope the project team works to preserve the vibrant red since the tomb has now been opened to the destructive outside air, moisture, etc.
