Wow, and that place is in good condition. Wish I knew how to read that stuff. I'm sure it takes a long time to learn. They almost look like they read like a story book with only pictures.

And all done with torch or lamp light. I'd love to see something like that. CHARLIE.

You don't think they used that mirror thing? Like some people think they did.

They would bounce light off of a series of highly polished convex metal reflectors into the tomb.
But I don't think they started doing that until they started using the valley of the Kings.
During the New Kingdom, 1539-1075 BC. That's where most of the mirrors have been found.

DAVID. Thanks, I can't see how that could possibly work since corridors go different directions. CHARLIE.
