Dr. Stuart Tyson Smith and Elizabeth Drolet – Photo by Nadejda Reshetnikova.

We just found an intact side niche. We reached the bottom in the Unit 35 shaft and it had a side niche that was still completely sealed, a modest Howard Carter moment! While the coffin was sadly termite eaten, it once had inlaid eyes  and the burial is in situ.   A nice array of pots was also found. Our conservator, Elizabeth Drolet, is helping to lift coffin pieces to check for traces of decoration.
