Elizabeth Thomas mentioned that little could be learned about this tomb during her early 1960s investigations. It was cleared by the Franco-Egyptian Mission in 1986. Based on the archaeological material recovered at that time, it appears that, like QV 76, the tomb was constructed during the 18th Dynasty and then reused during the 21st/22nd Dynasty, as well as during the Roman period.
This site was used during the following period(s):
According to the GCI-SCA, the tomb appears to be in good condition despite fracturing of the reddish colored ceiling and rear chamber rock, presumably the result of fire. Trash littered the floor of shaft and tomb at the time of the GCI-SCA assessment. One bat was observed by the GCI-SCA in the chamber in October 2007, as well as a mud wasp nests and a gecko. The tomb opening is in a location susceptible to flooding, though no evidence of previous flooding was noted.
