TT99: 'Archaeology in action' -- putting a box of finds down a shaft

Here you see a video made in October 2001. It shows us lowering a box of finds which were to remain in the tomb down one of the shafts, and then replacing the cover on the shaft. At the end is the ritual walk on the cover to ensure it is strong.

Most of these movies have no sound! If you can't view this movie, the chances are that you don't have Quicktime installed. Quicktime for Macintosh or Windows can be downloaded for free from

See this page for technical notes on how the movies were originally produced.
