Question(please) Hi, there Could you help me with two questions? 1) In (or on??) a videogame, set in Ancient Egypt , a boy goes into a hyena den(a cave) and their sister, who is outside the cave, tells their father: "I ran this way. Chazira ran over by the tombs"... What does "ran OVER BY the tombs" mean? Why over by? 2) About the same cave., a man says: There is no way to get to all the idols I know are here". Shouldn't it be "... get to all the idols THAT I know are here"? For example, do you say "I will reward everyone you told me helped you" or "I will reward everyone WHO you told me helped you"? Please, I really need your help!

1) "over by" means "near" the tombs. 2) At least in the United States, the "that" is optional and both ways are correct. However, in your second example, although either example is correct, the first one sounds a little funny to me. But both are correct in speech.
