If your screen is large enough (more than 1024px wide) press one of the tombs on the plan to see the photos of that tomb.

If you are on a smaller screen such as a phone or tablet you can use the links below to see the pictures.

The tomb numbering is based on that used by D'Ambrosio and De Caro to enable you to refer directly to their material for further photographs, descriptions of tombs, their construction, floor plans, finds and naming.
