I recently finished Wilbur Smith's River God and his sequel to that, the Seventh Scroll. I was wondering if anyone who has read the book(s) knows whether the tomb of Mamose (Tanus??) was really found in Ethiopia, or it was just fiction for our enjoyment. The first book has some factual reference in the epilogue part, about when the tomb of Queen Lostris was excavated and scrolls written by her slave Taita were found hidden behind a wall.
