KV 28 is located in the southeast branch of the main wadi. The tomb consists only of a shaft leading to a small, rectangular chamber (B) with an unexcavated gate in its rear wall. The tomb is undecorated.
There is an unexcavated gate and perhaps a chamber beyond it off chamber B.
According to Ryan, there is evidence of at least two burials in KV 28. Potsherds from the tomb suggest that it was cut in the reign of Thutmes IV. It may have belonged to a high official of his reign.
This site was used during the following period(s):
A rubble and cement wall has been constructed around the entry to divert flood water.
The tomb has been excavated by Donald Ryan of Pacific Lutheran University and is in good condition.
