About the Tomb
QV 6 is located on the south side of the main Wadi, a few meters from the edge of the paved path. The tomb has a shallow shaft (A) and is partially filled with debris.
Elizabeth Thomas recorded that QV 3, QV 5, and QV 6 were all interconnected, though no evidence of this can be seen today. She also noted the absence of any objects in QV 6.
The tomb was constructed in the 18th Dynasty.
This site was used during the following period(s):
As of November 2009, the SCA installed a masonry surround with a metal grill over the tomb entrance.
According to the GCI-SCA, the tomb shaft is friable with loose rock perched precariously near the entrance. Because the tomb is largely filled with debris, its chambers were inaccessible for assessment. Presumably flood and natural debris fill have resulted in the partial burial of the tomb. The GCI-SCA has recommended that the tomb be reburied to protect it from flooding and to ensure visitor safety.
