The Japanese mission from Waseda University working in Luxor have discovered the tomb of a man called Khonso-Im-Heb, overseer of granaries and beer makers during the Rameside period.

 

The tomb is at El-Khokha on the West Bank, and is rich in beautiful and descriptive wall decorations. The discovery is considered particularly important because of the content of the paintings, including those of daily life and familial relationships.

 

You can read more about the tomb on the Luxor Times site. It also has the best collection of photos currently in circulation. Read more here: https://www.luxortimesmagazine.blogspot.nl/2014/01/the-way-to-start-new-year-ramesside.html

 

I can’t wait to find out more about this exciting discovery!
