Fair enough. So, I take it your view is that the tomb could not have got to its present shape without a major re-structuring? That movement, shifts and collapses over millennia could not have produced the current arrangement?

I've no idea whether it could or not, but to convince me I would want that (simple) explanation reasonably discounted before looking at something much more complicated as being the only 'correct' answer.

A small question/observation.
Take a look at the Northern flankers, in particular the forward (Eastern one), do you not think it's in an odd position ?

Now let's say you move it to the position currently taken by the rear (Western) flanker, and then consider structure and aesthetics.

I addressed this previously so it's not giving anything away in regards to the book.
