KV 48 is located in the west branch off the southwest wadi. The tomb consists of a deep shaft (A) and a single chamber (B). The tomb was found undecorated.
The tomb belonged to Amenemipet, also known as Pairy, brother of Sennefer and Vizier and Governor of the Town under Amenhetep II. The evidence for this includes several inscribed shabtis. The fact that his tomb is located in the vicinity of KV 35 indicates that Amenemipet enjoyed the favor of Amenhetep II. The tomb was robbed during antiquity. Amenemipet is also the owner of TT 29 in Shaykh Abd al Qurna.
This site was used during the following period(s):
The Theban Mapping Project built a small stone wall around the tomb entrance to protect it from flood waters.
The tomb is inaccessible.
