More re possible location of tomb of Imhotep

This is a story from earlier this year, but the Huliq site has just picked up on it, so here it is again for anyone who missed it the first time. Ian Mathieson believes that his team may have discovered where the deified architect Imhotep was buried in Saqqara, using geophysical survey techniques. Two underground tombs have been located, both of which are immense by the standards of anything in the vicinity. Unfortunately the current ban on new excavations, imposed by the SCA, means that his theories will not be investigated for the forseeable future. See the above page for more.
