In regard to VAM's question about when Ben said DRAC looked in the tomb hole, I assumed that was what he meant by the "interior", in the quote below, but maybe he only meant the interior of the cave in which the hole is situated. In that case, He must have only shown them the foam filled hole. That would mean that they didn't actually see a tomb, they saw a blob of foam. What a surprise they will get when they find out that there's nothing behind the foam.
It felt very strange taking strangers to the site but I knew that if I wanted the Tomb excavated we had to find a way in and these two men may be just the ones to find it. I took them inside the cave being careful not to disturb the bushes around the entrance too much, and showed them where the shaft was that I had filmed through and what I thought was the direction of the original entrance.
After examining the interior we all returned outside where they examined the surrounding rock formation .
