This report is required reading for all lovers of the tombs. The current scale of numbers is destroying the tombs and whilst I would be the first to demand that scholars can still get access to the originals I feel that the majority of tourists would not miss out if they visited a reproduction. We have to preserve these tombs. There was a lecture at the November symposium about the work of Factum Arte, the technology was impressive. Several ideas were presented about how these reproductions could be set up, the hill and area behind the Carter House is a favoured spot. Making that whole area part of the West Bank experience. Anyway this report gives an update on the workFACTUM ARTE- TUTANKHAMUN: "- Sent using Google Toolbar"
