In 1997, A Zivie had discovered a tomb belonging to the wetnurse of Tutankhamun, lady Mayet. There was a blurb in the news, and a single iconif picture of the king with his nurse.
The only other things about the tomb that I've read is that there are a lot of cat skeletons and the first lion mummy found in Egypt.
This is interesting enough, but I'd rather know about the tombs original owner. Does anyone know of any epigraphic studies of this tomb, or any archaeological reports?
Any pictures not of a lion or of that one relief would be awesome at this point.

The publication question pops up from time to time on french speaking forums. As ZH is not shooting at him, they probably have some problems.

About this tomb, A.Zivie gives some rare details, a map, the relief with the noblemen and a bibliography in BSFE 162 (March 2005) p.36-9 :
Egyptian Archeology 13, London 1998 7-8
CRAIBL janvier-mars 1998 p33-54
Akhénaton et l'époque amarnienne, Paris, 2005 p.287-309
