KV5


KV5
   The tomb of the children of Ramesses II of Dynasty 19 in the Valley of the Kings. It may have been seen by the traveler Richard Pococke during his visit to the valley in 1738 but was first firmly recorded by James Burton in 1825, although not cleared. American archaeologist Kent Weeks began clearance in 1987 and found evidence of the burial of the sons of Ramesses II, including inscriptions of Ameherkhepeshef, Ramesses, Sety, and Meryatum. The design of the tomb is unique, with more than 150 rooms, including chapels for the various sons. It is undoubtedly the tomb of the royal children mentioned on a papyrus now in the Turin Egyptian Museum.
