Yes, the link is dead.
And you "think" it was the Hofer who said it?
So you are acknowledging that it really wasn't Görlitz or Erdmann who claimed the Khufu cartouche was sampled!
And what "cartouche" did the "film maker" mean? You know with certainty he meant the "Khufu" cartouche and not the "phyle" glyphs farther back toward the end of the wall?
That's your proof that Görlitz claimed the samples were from the "Khufu cartouche"?
So quick to vilify the investigators by quoting their technician who's expertise clearly is not archeology. Well done.
Are you really suggesting that Höfer was at all qualified to be the Görlitz-Erdmann spokesperson regarding things archeological? Here are more examples of Höfer's scholarly filmmaking achievements:
Of course, the irony is that those glyphs back at the end corner of that wall are indeed the "phyle" suffix that follow an anticipated cartouche which is very possibly concealed behind the wall joint. So Höfer might not have been that far off by associating those glyphs as being part of the "cartouche" which would make him essentially correct!
How can any of us ever know, when all we can do is think?
