I have some pics I took 98/99, showing reliefs inside some of the tombs. As to who's? I have no idea.
Quite surreal at the time. I spent several hours there, and I only saw 1 other person, the whole time. As for guides, signs, signposts or notices, zilch, nada, nothing.
Are there any publications that show and/or describe the reliefs in the various tombs? There has to be!!!. The workmanship is absolutly sublime, as one would expect.
TIA

... Very helpful and at least a good starting point for such research ...

" The Topographical Bibliography of Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphic Texts, Statues, Reliefs, and Paintings "

by Bertha Porter and Rosalind L.B. Moss (" P&M "). Searchable PDFs of the current print version, vols. 1-7. ...

I have P&M so will start on that.
The Osirisnet link I had already been through. Nothing there.
I'll keep researching, for now. ED can always have a look if I get really stuck.
Thanks

Happy tomb guessing is always a popular game ... Come with the pictures where you absolutely can't get any further.

read GULP!! read
Started with P&M, Theban Tombs - as I say read GULP!! read !
I knew that I could search, but what for? What search terms do I use to describe what I am seeing? Idea Idea
But what is that I see hidden in the text, but references to pictures taken by some guy by the name of Schott.
P&M is now sidelined - TOO hard for my old, tiny mind, Very Happy but a possible source of other image repositories, after I finish going through all 7516 of Schott's.
Most "irrelevent" to what I'm after but very interesting to see the monuments as they were, getting on for 100yrs ago.
Still got nearly 6000 to go, but I have 1 hit so far.
