The main centre of the region was the city of Akhmim, and the main deity of the region was the god ‘Min’. It is expected that more graves will be uncovered before the project is completed. 

Akhmim is the city that Amenhotep III's wife, Queen Tiy, and her family came from...which includes Ay (later pharaoh after Tut) and Nefertiti, Yuya, Thuya, etc.  Not a lot is known about their original home Akhmim and the politics of the city (wrt the 18D royal court) that saw them reach into the Royal family and even snatch the crown for themselves.  These new graves may shed some light on that shadowy area of AE history.
