KV 63 & 55
In Response To: Looking at KV 35 ()

I watched the two-hour special tonight on the Discovery Channel.

Hopefully multi-spectral imaging or other techniques can allow archaeologists to read identifying inscriptions.

As we found (Part II of my on-line book), Ankhesenamun buried Smenkhkare in KV55 in defiance of Tiye and Aye. Ankhesenamun later refused to legitimize the succession of Aye and probably also conspired with the Hittite court against Aye. Perhaps articles belonging to Ankhesenamun were deposited in KV 63, even though she died in disgrace and was not given a proper royal burial.
