Recorded May 10, 1837

The drawings below are the red, ochre-painted cartouches, hieroglyphic inscriptions, quarry marks, leveling lines, axis markers, directional notations, names of workgangs in the form of Khufu's name? and graffiti? that were found in Lady Arbuthnot's Chamber and drawn by Colonel William Howard Vyse in his journal on May 10, 1837, EXACTLY AS THEY WERE DISCOVERED on May 10, 1837.

This not only depicts what the inscriptions looked like on the day they were discovered, it also establishes an authentic historical record of the discovery.

This date is very important.
