About the Tomb
An inscription on one Coffin bore the name and title, royal nurse, In. In has been thought by some to be Sit-Ra, called In, royal nurse of Hatshepsut. The mummy is now in the Egyptian Museum, Cairo. The other, still unidentified mummy remained in situ. Thomas suggested it might be the mummy of Hatshepsut, relocated by Thutmes III.
This site was used during the following period(s):
During Ryan's work on the tomb in 1989, a wooden box was built to hold one mummy, and a metal cover was set over the pit entrance.
The tomb was excavated by Carter and then closed again. It was relocated by Donald Ryan of Pacific Lutheran University.
