Interview with Dr Otto Schaden
Exerpts from an interview with the director of the team that found KV63, on the Egypt Today website:
"Egypt Today: How does it feel to have stumbled upon such an important discovery after having been looking for something else for so long?
Otto Schaden: First off, we didn’t stumble — we were not even searching for it! [laughs] What we were doing is excavating these workmen’s huts. In doing so, we had decided that we would not just do the tops of the huts, we would check underneath. What I didn’t want was for someone to come by 10 or 20 years later and say, 'Boy, were they stupid for missing this!'. "
