I got bored listening to him .....but my impression was that they’d unearthed nothing more than foundation deposits.

Isn’t that an old discovery....2 years ago?

Could mean a tomb. Could be nothing.

Then he seemed to ramble on about KV 65.....discovered in 2008 I believe and as yet unexcavated.

Better english and more photos. But typical Hawas muscling in on old news and pretending he actually works.
